Always set my Cruise control to 56 mph, then you have 4 mph in reserve to pass HGv's and stay within the speed limit on motorways

or just don't pass a lorry that is going faster than you want to?

We have the 55 Jeep Grand Cherokee and on motorway we set the cruise control to 60mph as that gives us about 4mph if we need to increase our speed and stay within the speed limit.  At 60mph on the car's speedo the Satnav reads about 56mph.
