Agree with you on most. My thing is I attempt to place car in cruise control as often as possible for two reasons.After many decades of experiments the answer is obvious yet it is not what people talk about. The test cars:
# ONE, Driving Habits
The trouble is that this type of driving annoys the people behind me, you must be careful these days. How is this achieved?
My definition of a good driver is one who rarely uses the brakes. This is done by constantly looking as far ahead as you can, in some cases a mile or so.

#1 Less meetings on side the road with Traffic police, hence no tickets.
#2 It does very effectively improve mpg.
Now your comment: annoys the people behind me, you must be careful these days. I see this every time I am on the road ways.
Young ladies, er little girls to me, basting thru stop signs (or pause signs to them) like someone is chasing them. Then on the roadways,
almost run into or run over me because they are doing 20-30 mph over the posted speed limits. Oh, and also as they zoom past you
they have no idea or even seem to give a ****ed to use that wonderful item, the turn signal. It is wild out there these days. Last night
in a town near here a young juvenile (caught already) followed an elderly person off a 60mph highway into a residential neighborhood
cause he felt disrespected or some bull (road rage) and jumped out and shot and killed the person in his driveway. The deceased's wife says
neither one of them were even aware the guy was following them and had no clue what angered him.
