4:10 vs 3:73 vs 3:55 vs 3:27 gears
 
So I just bought a new bullit and the guy before me had 4:10s on it..I can honestly say I hate them....call me crazy but don't like them at all..when on the highway which I do alot of highway driving ...

At 75mph my Rpms are at 3k! I'm getting like 17 mpg on highway...so with that being said which one of these will give me the best mpg for highway driving?? 3:27? = stock?

Thanks guys!

Go with 3.27s or 3.55s to bring th highway rpms down and your highway mileage up. It want be as quick off the line after the gear change but obviously thats not your concern so either go with 3.27s or 3.55s.

Thank you so much sir. I civilized and respectful answer ..unlike that one smart a$$ about the honda and that one douche bag about the smart car. Ya know I really aprriciate alot of you on here such as mr rockwell28. But some of you really should grow the f&c$ up and answer something in a adult manner. And not be a A$$hole. Grow up children just because you drive a v8 mustang and your 16 doesn't make you a bada$$. Thanks again mr rockwell28.

You should all take lessons for him

I had 4.10s in my GT and got 24mpg driving like a normal person. :icon_shrug:

Either you need to change the way you drive, sell your car and buy a corolla, or be happy with 17mpg. My Jeep is getting me 17mpg and I'm ecstatic :icon_qtank:
