Question 1: what is the best rpm to shift at with stock gears and what not, to achieve the best mpg during semi city/highway driving.

Question 2: after the low fuel light comes on, how much gas, or how many more miles typically do you have left until your SOL.

Thanks

Shift as soon as you can without the engine bogging down and about 25-30 miles.

I shift between 2000-2500 if I'm trying to sip gas. Except into 5th, then I go to about 2700 because there is about a 1K RPM drop between 4th and 5th.

Why let your car get that low on fuel?
