if I'm wrong correct me, but everyone I've talked to on here said 4.10s get worse mileage and are made more for the track, and I've asked quite a few people.

4.10 is not a track gear. 4.10 puts you through the gears too quickly for a circuit track in our cars and too quickly for drag, really. These gears are for fun on the street.

I agree with "ColeJohnson", on what he said. Many times people exagerate info, 4.10 do lose some MPG's on the HWY, but you make up for that in the city driving and the thrill of them is remarkable. changing stock stuff, can be different and depending on how much you change, that goes "Hand in Hand". Saying you get the worst milege is an exageration. Ex. someone driving a 4 cylinder all their life, then all of a sudden get a V8, they are going to say that V8 get the worst gas milege in the world. now is that accurate? If your not sure of this little question, then remember V10s, V12s. Not just concentrating on Engs, there are tons of different CAMS, are they all the same? NO, different ones make different changes. My point is, not all GEARS are the same, and 4.10 are NOT the highest gears, I'm still waiting for someone to tell how the 4.90s are with DD driving.

Exactly. If you can keep your foot out of it (which is tough), you can get decent mileage. I hate how people who have never had 4.10s will comment on this because of what they have heard or what they have read. If you haven't experienced it, just don't comment. I will get off my soap box now.

Your mpg's depend on your gears, and other mods done!.. Such as bolt-ons or having a fully built motor and so on!.. I have one buddy that has nothing more than a full exhaust, tune, and 4.10s!.. Both city and highway driving and he gets worse mpg's than me!... His car is also an auto!.. Another buddy of mine has full bolt-ons, full exhaust, a tune, and 4.10s!.. His mpg's are the same as mine!.. He has a 5spd!.. It all depends on what else your car has and were exactly your "power band" is!.. The less rpms your spinning the better your mpg's will be!..

4.10's in an Auto trans would get worse MPG than with a Manual

Honestly, if you run out of gears, meaning you can't shift to a higher gear at a given speed, you will get worse MPG. Given the same car/engine, it would all depend on your RPMs wherever you go. If you have 3.55s and you are at 1500RPM at 55MPH in 4th should be the same MPG as if you had 4.10s at 1500RPM at 45MPH in 3rd. It's all about RPMs. Your MPG may be better in the city cause before the gear swap normally you were at 1600RPMs in 3rd going 30MPH, but now you can go to 4th while at 30PMH and are at 1500RPMs. Your engine is 100RPMs slower at the same speed. This is a make believe example, but trying to show its about RPMs.

If your worried about MPG and you want gears don't do gears. Only do gears if you want to have fun in your car. Because ultimately you will be smashing the pedal down having fun and loose sight of MPG.

But if you drive the same route (school, work) you will most likely be going the same speed, so you would be turning higher RPMs, correct?

Not saying I'm worried, but it's a true statement. I was just adding info to the thread

Depends...what I'd your route like? What gear ate you normally in and at what speed?

True, unless you could go up a gear in areas along the way. Say you were in 4th 75% of the time in route. Now with your 4.10s you are able to move up to 5th in some areas. So now you are in the 4th 50% of the time and 5th 25% of the time. You might get better MPG cause you should be at a lower RPM in 5th than you were in 4th, even with 4.10s. Bunch a variables, but you see what I mean.

I can get 20+ mpg mixed city/hwy driving if I'm good. I usually get about 17mpg mixed city/hwy. why? I love to drive and accelerate fast and I don't care about paying for the gas.

On trips down the interstate I can average 24mpg running at 66-68mph. That's essentially stock mpgs and only 3-4mph slower.

I don't see the problem.

Ive been averaging 17.7MPG since I bought mine. I got a geek app for my iPhone to track it. Only averaged 16 one the weeks I went to the track. I saw your vid on 4.10s today and it was hard to see what you got at 80MPH. You got that fancy digital speedo I'll see what I get at 80. I got 3.73s, but there ain't much diff from stock 3.55s. Probably why the dude who owned it did the swap cause ain't no way you see a change, but would probably feel it. The TR3650's have a pretty high OD, .58 to 1, I think. 4.10s probably affect Mustangs with T5's in a bigger way.

I'd switch to 4.10's but I got some other duties before that would happen. Been happy w/3.73, but I do like my smiles per gallon and will not stop driving my beast no matter what gas costs

I just switched to 4.10s, wish ida went with 3.73s. I'm not concerned about mpg I don't like the way it drives now.

Is it all herky-jerky when normal driving, but when you get on it, it's fine?

My mustang with stock 3.27 got about 24hwy mpg and no it gets a little over 20. Stock got roughly 16 city now can get 18ish. The acceleration is smooth and nice through all gears. Not jerky like stock gears due to to RPM differences. and when I want it to it can roast my 305 drag radials in first.

Say what y'all want but 4.10 is sex. I'd do it again if I had the chance. That being said I've never had 3.73 so that why I don't comment on the advantages/disadvantages of both gears versus stock. I don't like to speak on things I know nothing about. Haha

I'm not saying there bad it wouldn't be fun if we all like the same things I no I almost ordered 4.10s but I love running fast doing 90-100 an my rpms are around 2,300-2,500 do I changed my mind to just keep the 3.27s I don't run my car much at the track and I like the pick up with the 3.27s so I'm happy with them I'm just going to keep them

Not dropping a steamy on 4.10's either. I got what I got cause it was in the car. They just happen to be close enough that it's not high on my todo list. That's what I know haha

Just my 2 cents. But if your worried about gas mileage then you shouldn't have gotten a mustang.

Not worried about MPG here. Like ColeJohnson has said - Smiles Per Gallon

Your new black GT is sweet, by the way!

Mpg may not be a issue for everyone but I think everyone can say its nice to not have to fill up every other day at $4.00 a gallon
