I run D mode when accelerating to my cruising speed with the van (Crusader 23'6") and at 95km/h happy to go to cruise control. In the wet...NO CRUISE CONTROL. And on downhill runs and coming to a planned stop, I slide the selector to M and allow the engine to assist the braking exercise.
In undulating roads, I knock the cruise control off and just use the right foot to keep her chugging along.
When going uphill, and I detect a line of cars behind me, I knock the cruise control off, otherwise, they will never get around me (the Touareg will happily pull the big van at any speed on any incline).
