I set it on the floor out of the way so I can set up bar on the dashboard. Cold beer and Blue Beavers to go.

If in on an open road where traffic is moving and I can keep a safe distance then I use the cruise control.
I find it gives you your best gas mileage. Now this depends on a number of factors, 1-no head or cross winds, 2-a relative flat road with very few or no hills.

Only on non mountainous highways. Cruise control really sucks in a mountainous area.
