When I had my Saturn, I first shifted at 2k. Everyone knows shifting early gets better mpgs... I did some research and found my engines peak tq was around 3500rpms. So I started shifting a 4k, which keeps the engine in its "power band". Still got 40 mpg and it didn't take forever to reach cruising speed. I quit the lugging, that's for diesels.
