Duratrac mpg vs Nitto Terra Grappler MPG

So I have done a lot of searching about the differences between the two tires. I know the tread on the Duratrac is a crossbreed of A/T and M/T but comes in a c range and is a few pounds lighter than the D range Nitto Terra. I was curious if anyone knew the MPG difference if any between the two tire, I realize that the c range is lighter but due to its extreme tread nature, wondering if it got worse mpg than the d range. I am looking to buy a 265/75/16 tire.

I had Nitto Terra's first, 265/70/17 and averaged around 15-17 with about 2' of lift.

Now have Duratracs in 285/70/17 and average about 14-16 with a little over 3' of lift.

I have Duratracs in that size and lost about 1mpg when I wore out my BFG AT's that were 265/70/16 D, even though the Duratracs are lighter by 4lbs on paper, but the tire is taller so that might be a factor also. I would guess there would be very little difference between the 2 with only 3 lbs difference and same size, but the Duratracs being more aggressive. I believe the Terra's come with a 3ply sidewall in that size compared to the 2ply dura's, and there have been reviews stating the dura's do have weaker puncture prone sidewalls. They also get some of the best reviews for snow, so it also depends what type of off roading you do. My next tire will be the Terras in that size.
