It's a 7.25% change in ratio so it might make a 7.25% change in mpg but I have no clue if it's a linear change like that or not. If it is, and if the 3.31 gave 20mpg, then the 3.55 would give 18.55mpg. I'm just going with the straight math. Hopefully someone that knows some of the engineering will come along with an answer.
