12 4wd 4 cyl gas mileage vs 2wd

the 2wd is rated 19/25 and the 4wd is rated 19/21 (automatic for both)
anyway to get the 19/25 on the 4wd such as running street tires, etc?
I see the 2wd drive runs P215/70R15 and the 4wd is P245/75R16
what are the reasons for the better mileage on the 2wd?
thanks!

Are you comparing a 5 lug to a 4wd?

The reg cab 4X4 has 4.10 gear ratio and the reg cab 4X2 has 3.58 gear ratio.You notice there is only 1 mpg difference for city driving. Running 70 mph the 4X4 with 4.10 gears will be running more rpm.Running around town and rural local roads I don't think you will see a huge difference in mpgs.Maybe 2 mpg.The 4x4 has 16 inch tires and the 4X2 has 15 inch tires.4X4 is a 6 lug wheel and the 4X2 5 lug wheel.
