I pulled down my 6 tube light fixture and ripped out the ballasts and rewired it for option 2, powering the tubes directly off 120v power.
If I can rewire something to make it 26% more efficient I'm going to.
The original light fixture was drawing almost 2.1 amps, now it draws 0.84 amps and is brighter.
Next step will be to install a timer switch.

So for around $40 I will reduce garage lighting consumption by 2/3 to 3/4 just by installing leds and a timer switch so the lights don't get left on.
