I set cruise for 64 on flat ground and it will do 63 on 6% uphill grade and 65 down the other side without using the brakes. I would love to get 2017 F350 with adaptive cruise.

I use it on longer highway based hauls when traffic is light. In medium to heavier traffic I'm intervening too much to make it worthwhile to use.

Cruse while towing

I use while on flats but when we hit a hill I turn it off but my 150 down shifts and holds the speed when going down hill in the mountains and saves braking.

I have used it in my tractor trailer for thirty years . why not use it pulling a little travel trailer. it saves on fuel and fatigue.

I use it the minute I get on the highway, the computer know how to handle ups and downs and keeps a constant speed. in 6 years I have had no issues and do not foresee any.

I use only on flat ground when ther is no wind. If you use it on uphill with a diesel there is a chance the engine computer will shut the engine down.

I keep it in tow/haul and let the truck decide what it wants to do and intervene when necessary. Just what I do, I am not saying it is right or wrong...

Cruise Control

I usually use it but it has to be a relatively calm day, and it does have a tendency to act weird when I get passed by an 18 wheeler, the truck bucks and it drop out of cruise.

We tow a FR PUP with our 07 Pacifica. I use the cruise most of the time. Exception: driving through Iowa, where it is a constant up-down-up. the car handles it all right, but my wallet can't take the cost of the lost mpg. I turn off the cruise in the hills and still get about 21 mpg.

I too use it on flats and downhill, and even on grades if it does not hunt (transmission). 27' 5th wheel and a Sierra 1/2 ton, 5.7 V8
