I drive an ep3 and have a scangauge. Staying below 2200 rpm gives me zero advantage in terms of fuel savings. It shows 22-25mpg if I am shifting below 2200rpm. If I am shifting around 2800-3000 rpm SG shows me I am getting 22-30mpg. With this car, the trick is to get upto speed with moderate accelaration and then maintain the speed with pulse and glide (I don't turn my engine off). Car has fairly good aerodynamics and coasts fairly well. I usually drive around 60-65mph which shows best mpg on SG.

Don't lug the engine on the K20A3. It gives no fuel advantage. Like wise staying below 2200rpm gives me no advantage.
