When I had a saturn SC1, I got into hypermiling. I was shifting at 2000rpm, lugging around all the time. Being a car guy it came to me that engines are most efficient at peak torque. So, I started shifting at 4k and saw no drop in mpg. I tried not to go over half throttle though, because of fuel enrichment. Sure made driving a little more fun.
