The CVT will still sense the load even a regular tranny. I went bigger on my GC 70 series to 75 and its a bit like towing. I downshift very easily going up grades etc.
These engines suck a lot of gas if the is the slightest extra load. I can tow an empty 6ft x 6ft boxed coverted camper trailer which I can lift the side off the ground. But the wind drag knocks the millage big time. Throw some weight in it and you down 10mpg.
