Driving Technique and Drive-by-Wire

When driving my DbW vehicle I find that once I'm in top gear my right foot is no competition for the cruise control according to my ScanGauge. I end up using the up and down buttons to keep LOD down when going up and up when going down unless it's a good coast.

No matter how steady my foot is, it always seems like it is about 10-20% worse when reading the instant MPGs off the SG. Would it be because of what the ECU is "guessing" about what my foot is telling it to it?

With the Accord, cruise is no match for my foot (which is too bad because my legs are too long for it). Anyone else finding the same things with DbW cars?
