FWIW in my experience the cruise control is a gentler user of the throttle (by obsewrvation of the instantaneous fuel consumption read-out) than I am (and I'm getting 34-35 UK mpg on long journeys). Remember than any speed over about 55 mph is going to cause massive increases in wind resistance to be overcome which may overwhelm any other effect. And, of course, YMMV!
