Question 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?

For max performance, generally red lining the RPM between shifts works best.

If you have the engine torque/RPM curve and trans gearing you can use the calculator at the link below:

For max MPG, try to get into highest gear you will be using as fast as possible.
