For me it's 1100 RPM.
My Insight refuses to drop RPM below 1100 RPM and the CVT maxes out ('top gear') at 50 km/h per 1000 RPM, so I get best economy driving 55 km/h @1100 RPM.
In nice weather that can be 35 to 40 km per liter (80 - 92 MPG)...!

60 km/h @1200 RPM is hardly any worse though, but it climbs ever faster with more speed. Anything above 80 km/h (50 mph) @1600 RPM hurts a lot.
