I am running a 195x60x16 and it dropped mine some but I can't remember how much. Next time out I will see what my rpm is at that speed.
Thanks! If I'm careful on the twist on a long ride I can get 42mpg. I'm hoping by dropping under 3000rpm I can get better than that.

Can a tire size change enable me to drop about 500 rpm?

I'm running about 3300 rpm in 5th gear at about 78-79 mph. Is there a tire I can safely change to that could drop that RPM under 3000 :?:

This information was found from a post on another board. IIRC, this is an issue with the actuator not reporting to the system as fully functional. The cruise module doesn't see the actuator as being "happy". This is a "Fail Safe" mode and is likely discussed in the NOTES area of the ETM. The green "...

Re: fuel economy

If I'm careful doing easy starts, lots of highway driving and keep the cruise control at 79mph. I've been getting 40.3mpg. And I'm a big 375+ guy.

No brake light from brake handle.

It seems that when I squeeze the brake handle the brake light doesn't come on. But it works from the foot peddle.
Where should I start looking?

Thanks in advance for the help.
