Yeah, the cruise is really aggressive running tunes. It will kick down in a heartbeat, especially towing. It also has a clunk when it disengages. It does it on DJ's and Eric's tunes, but it perfectly smooth stock. I know tons of people who have the same problem. I wish the tuners could figure out how to fix it. It's really annoying.
As for MPG, I've done testing running the exact same trip stock versus DJ's eco tune. It's about 30 miles of gently rolling hills. With the cruise set at 73, I get 17.2 stock and 19.2 running eco. I've never done a back to back comparison with other tunes, but none seem to do any better or worse than the other as long as you keep your foot out of it.
