Safely merging on to the interstate for me is basicly about how far I can see and where traffic is at. I'm wide open until I have a good view of traffic and then back off as I can.
I've found that light acceleration doesn't pay off in this car until you hit 4th gear, and even hard accel isn't a killer if you can avoid braking later, kinda halfass pulse and glide, don't be afraid of the pulse if you can cruise/ glide.
