I was just seeing if I could force it in somehow once I reach highway speed.

What I do with my truck when I want it to go into mds mode is when I get up to around 60 with the cruise on I step down on it till I see the tach drop down then I let it settle back down to the cruise and the tach now sets on around 16 and the mds light is on and that is where I get the best mileage.
