What RPM do you cruise in?

I always cruise down the road at about 2.5-3k rpm when I'm not on it, but I've always wondered what rpm others cruise in down the road? How about you guys

Grab a higher gear man. Save some fuel. No need to rev up there. I'm 1.5 to 2.2 k at cruise.

I try to stay at least in a nice acceleration rpm for simple passing and good gas mileage.

If I see someone that might want to test me I'll drop it to cruising closer to 3500 to not make such a violent transition when I drop that final gear.

You're most likely lugging the engine doing that...

At 40 it does. But once I hit 45+ it goes away.

1700-2000 RPM.
Low enough for gas mileage but not too low to create detonation.

usually anywhere from 2000-2500 cruising unless I get stuck between gears behind someone. I hate that.

Well I go 1500 in 2nd on side streets, and main drags I usually go 2000-3000 in 3rd, depending on traffic and speed limit.
