I see a difference of about 1 to 2 mpg loss in my 2.7 in the winter. If we have a lucky warm spell and it hits 60 plus, I notice my fuel economy improves. The freezing cold definitely makes it harder...

I was surprised at how much difference there is between 3.73 and 3.55. I test drove two identical trucks, one with 3.73 and one with 3.55. I could really feel the difference in acceleration.
