You shift at 2k? I feel like you would be losing mpg.

This all depends on how your car is tuned and how fast you are accelerating.

I generally shift at 2.5-2.8k, enough that on the next gear it doesn't bog hard.

I generally stay in 3rd going 30 as 4th is way to slow to try to make a move quickly.

Usually shift to 5th at 45mph on normal driving. I think the manual says 46 or 47 is the optimal speed to shift to 5th.
