really? i did a little experimenting with this and wasn't sure if to much potential was good or working against myself. does this also assume you have 6 in all performance skills? and then there is leach on top of that. does that power stack on top of your efficient bonus, or does it work against that too?

on both kdf i have all efficient lethians, think it raised all my lower energy level by 5.

I'm pretty sure the efficient doff gives a numerical value, I believe a +5 to warp core efficiency. This would be the same as putting a point in the skill tree in the red zone.

It's not a flat bonus, it's scaled- more bonus @ less power.

This is the best study I've seen on the subject, to-date. Beyond that, all I have is personal experience with my own builds. You can see, however, that returns on increasing Efficiency seem to drop off rapidly beyond about 90, consistently, through all his tests. My experience confirms this.

I am almost sure leech adds to everything. I will do some tests to see if leech gain will nullify the gain from efficiency though, which is fairly easy.
