Default Manual Camrys

I just bought a used 2011 Camry with the six speed manual transmission. The owner's manual says nothing about what shift points to use to get the maximum gas mileage and performance. I know years ago the owner's manuals (when they used 5 speed manuals) had a table for recommended shift points. I think first to second was 15 MPH, second to third was 25 MPH, 3rd to fourth was 30 or 35 and 4th to fifth was 45 MPH. Anybody in the group have any suggestions?

Default Manual Camrys

I guess I should have re-worded my query. I don't need an "owner's manual." I have an owner's manual and as I said previously, it makes no mention of when to shift gears for optimum gas mileage or what is the best speed to shift in every gear so as not to lug the engine.
I started buying Toyotas in 74 or 75 when I bought a Corina. Anybody remember them? Then I purchased a 72 Celica (4 speed manual) and kept that until after our first child was born. Next was an 81 Tercel-only new car I ever bought. Other Toyotas in the garage included an 83 Celica GT-S (5 speed ), an 84 Celica (automatic), an 85 Celica GT-S (5 speed), an 85 Supra (5 speed), a 79 Corolla (4 or 5 speed), an 02 Corolla (5 speed), a 93 Camry wagon, a 95 Camry wagon (both automatics for my wife at the time). I had a 94 Camry (automatic) and traded that for my first manual Camry, an 02 five speed. Traded that for a real nice 2010 Camry automatic. Only had that a year and missed shifting gears so I started looking for a 2010 or 2011 with the six speed manual since they were the last years to have them. It took a couple of months to find one that was decent. But I got one with less than 90k miles on it. That's my life story with Toyotas.
