C46 cruise settings

Enjoying my new purchase of the the C46. I found some additional pilot manuals online (actually seems to be the source for the product manual) that cover the missing cruise data. Can't seem to get the cruise settings (Manifold, RPM, temperature, speed) to match up with the cruise charts. Mainly it seems that auto-lean is not actually modeled and I find myself adjusting the mixture like any normal aircraft which gets me close to the fuel burn numbers. The speeds seem to be slow compared to the chart when matching aircraft weight with the various horsepower settings at altitude.
This is all okay with me for this level aircraft. I'm just curious what cruise settings other users would recommend for the aircraft.
