When do I use 6th gear only on the highway?
Optimal for what?
I'm not trying to be a pain, but different driving styles get different results, and your goals might differ from others. Some people want to maximized their fuel economy so they drive more conservatively. Others want maximum performance, and don't care about things like MPG...
Most of my driving is normal everyday driving (commuting) so I drive kinda conservatively, and shift around 3500 rpm. Then there's times when some little honda pulls up next to me at the light, so then I'll get alot closer to redline... :-)
