    Last year I went from Stirling to south Birmingham (Bromsgrove) which is 315 miles so a 630 mile trip in 1 day

    on the way down I never used the cc and got around 36mpg

    on the way home until (I got to Lesmahagow in the Borders and booted it ) I used the cc all the way up the M6 and got 39 mpg. The roads were dead at this time so I could sit at the same speed for long stretches

    I've found that I can drive more economically without cruise, but I have to think about it alot more and end up driving a lot slower, overall cruise control stops temptation to drive too quickly IMO.

    Foot to the floor in every gear 😀😀

    Mpg maybe low, but you get to your destination quicker

    I find the cruise control does help the MPG number increase! But it can be a massively boring drive trying to be sensible with the fuel consumption!

    Sorry, not sure how to show (automatically) what this is referring to, but it was an earlier reply that said for better MPG... "let the missus drive!'

    One week into VXR Insignia Supersport ownership and... 'Ding Dong' you're not wrong!

    Me: 23.4. She: 32.6! I need some lessons!

    I've always found that I can drive more economically without cruise control on. You can judge the road ahead and adapt where necessary.

    Well worth using on motorways

    I use cruise control on dual carriageways and motorways a lot, where I live there's always cops and mobile speed units hiding everywhere. Not worth the risk for me
