Re: International Truck with DT466E engine
The problem with the limiter at 65 is that if you have to pass someone doing 62 you can't get around them safely. Set it at 75 and you can cruise at 65 and still pass safely.
I used to drive for Schneider National, they had the trucks limited to 63 mpg, and the cruise control limited to 61 mph. Those trucks were so poorly maintained that even that was probably unsafe
