I use these settings on nginx and haven't had to specify gzip_http_version

# Gzip Settings

gzip on;
gzip_disable "msie6";

# when proxy if backend returned a gzip encoded for a client that would not support it
# makes sense if we want varnish to store compressed content
gunzip on;

# add the vary accept header
gzip_vary on;
gzip_proxied any;
gzip_comp_level 7;
gzip_buffers 16 8k;
gzip_types text/plain text/css application/json text/xml application/xml application/xml+rss text/javascript application/javascript application/x-javascript;
