Yea, this is one that's easy to get caught in, especially with trucks in front. They are doing the same speed as you but sometimes very gradually slow down due to the grade and the change is so slow that you don't notice. Nature of the beast, but I wouldn't give up the ACC at this point. I really like it. I actually have to be careful when I'm driving my wife's Outback which doesn't have that feature...

Re: 784 miles, 13 hours, 20.5mpg

Recently drove my new '14 GC Ecodiesel from Antwerp, Belgium to Venice, Italy. Started at around 11am in Antwerp and arrived in Venice at 1am (next morning), 14hour trip with a lunch stop outside Strasbourg, France and a great fondue dinner in Lucern, Switzerland. The total distance of the trip was around 760miles and averaged 32.6mpg (basically one fuel stop).

Not too bad
