T/H on, but hardly ever use cruise. I averaged 12.7 MPG pulling my 10K 5th wheel with Hot Attitude Juice on Level 2 this past weekend through some fairly decent grades through West Virginia and Kentucky.

T/H on, OD on, and cruise on so long as there are not too many hills. Pulling 12,000 5th wheel. Seems like I always have a head wind and get between 9-10 mpg.

OD on/ T/H on makes it easier in traffic & hills, I just keep it the same on the freeway. I change the OD to off on the big hills, seems to run better, less stress on the DMAX & me.
