mpg question

on a car equipped with a double pumper carb settup

is it better to drive around at say 2000rpm in third gear at 30mph with the gas pedal pressed down 25% of the way

or to drive around at 1200 rpm in 4th gear at 30 mph with the gas pedal pressed down 50% of the way ?

in which scenario would I achieve the best mpg's

it's always recommended to stay in as high a gear as possible for fuel economy, but does that still apply if you're dogging it ?
