Default What is my gear ratio?

Does anyone know how I can figure out what my gear ratio is?
I have a 2014 Mustang GT, manual California Special

Did you look for a sticker on the differential cover?

Thank you.
Having a higher gear like 3.73 would mean the gears last longer, correct?
So I stay in first gear longer with 3.73, than 3.31?
I am asking because I go through my gears extremely fast, I feel like.
First gear is almost non-existent.

Opposite of your thought...the higher the ratio, the quicker/less time you will have to go thru them. But you will get going quicker...lol.

Ask the guys running 4.10's how quick them move thru 1st gear.

It's actually the opposite. 3.73's make your acceleration slightly better than say 3.31's or 3.55's, however you will go through gears quicker and be driving at a higher steady RPM at freeway speeds. For the record, with my 3.55's, 1st gear is basically non-existent as well.

I'd also say that 3.73's are probably perfect for daily driving.
