This may be hard to estimate, but what is the general consensus on MPG between the stock 3.31 rear end and the 3.73? I am going to be moving further away from work, and am not sure how I want my future car geared.

I average about 13mpg overall with some highway and city driving. i blame the poor economy on a sick addiction to blower whine.

How much do you "get on it". I certainly let it rip, but most of the time I'm just cruizin' back and forth to work.

I've found that shifting at 2k and part throttle makes a HUGE difference. The only problem is with all this power that's hard to do... From my experience acting an idiot mixed with highway i get about 15 or 16mpg. Haven't gone through an entire take with normal driving yet.
