Default Check my efficiency number please!

Brewed a pale ale. Ingredients below:

9.5 lbs of 2 row malt
.5 lbs 60L Crystal

6.5 gallons into the boil. Turned out at 1.032.
4.5 gallons final. Turned out at 1.054.

I think I'm in the 60's efficiency wise. Not very confident working with beersmith...

Tastybrew says:

Efficiency
Actual Gravity: ( 1.054 - 1 ) * 1000 = 54 points
Potential Gravity: ( 1.082 - 1 ) * 1000 = 81.9 points
Efficiency: 54.0 / 81.9 * 100 = 65.9 %

67.08% in Beersmith

Edit: Weird, why are my #s higher than everyone elses. I got 69%?

Double edit: Oh, was using 6 row. Doh. 67% is correct
