Default Question for those with -1+2 set-up

Hey guys,

I was looking at doing the -1+2 sprockets over the winter but was wondering about gas mileage as I do some highway driving.
currently with my stock (i believe) set-up I am cruising at 120km/h (75miles/h) and the rpm's are at 6k in 6th gear.

Does anyone with the -1+2 set-up know what rpm's your at when cruising at a certain speed preferable 6th gear.

km/h or miles/h doesnt matter I can do the conversion.

Thanks,

I"ll tell you this much....your going to be cruising at a higher rpm...therefore gas mileage will drop slightly.

Yes, this is why I was asking the question. Im trying to decide if the extra acceleration is worth the less mpg.
