i think finding a 3.08LSD should be possible if anyone has a ef/el owners handbook, in there it should have all the possible diff ratios/combos

I looked at my EL owner handbook recently and from memory it's not specific, it's kind of vague and doesn't give you a definite answer.

You could fit a 3.23 or the like lsd and then fit larger tyres to bring the ratio back to around 3.08.

thats not a bad idea, but i think id need to fit at least 19" rims for that to happen, and last time i checked 19" rims that looked any good were lotsa $$$

Going from 3.08's to 3.7's I went from 650-700km on the highway per tank to around 550km @ 100km/h. Without doing maths after being at work all day that is around 2L per 100km.

No, you could just fit larger tyres to your existing rims, or to new rims of any diameter.

Yup, my fuel economy got exponentially worse as my speed increased over 100 too. That's why I got cruise control so I could keep it at 100 lol :roll:
