I think that may be a major factor, since with the cvt it just doesn't have the oomph to stay in high gear under any but ideal (aka slow and flat) conditions with ethanol. A little more power and it could make a major difference, since when it downshifts it really sucks the gasoline. Leaving it in manual 6th means it slows a lot on minor grades. Less downshift is good.
