Yes, a CAI & tune will add a little mpg under normal driving conditions.

4.10's by themselves do not reduce you mpg unless you are driving the car hard. Under normal driving, particularly in town, they can actually give you slightly better mpg, as because gears are a torque multiplier, they actually make it easier for your engine to get the car rolling and to keep it rolling.

Yeah! I noticed that 4:10's seemed to make my foot heavier for some reason! LOL!

believe it or not, when i had the 4.10 i actually got better gas mileage then before. and when i got pullies on my gt the gas mileage went up then also. driving style also makes a huge difference.

not a big difference.... i went from 3.73's to 4.10's... at 60 mph i was at 2k rpm with the 3.73's and with the 4.10's im running about 2200 to 2250rpm at 60mph
