Generally the 100 or 140 settings will give the best mileage; keep in mind that when you're running these settings for said mileage, you've got a lot more power on tap, so you can also kill your mileage at the same time...2x4 under the go pedal makes a difference, so my friends say...

the 75hp setting is the best for daily driving & fuel savings

the reason the 2wd gets better milage is cuz it has about half the resistance against the motor ( ie t-case front axle) plus areodynamics. way closer to the groung. I know cuz my dads 250 is a 2wd. and he get better than 20. But I did in my obs but that was with the stock 235/75R16 tires now with 265/75R16 A/T's it's closer to 17. but i drive 100 mi to and from work on I15 at 80mph.
