    Will an aftermarket LSD like the "Auburn" change my MPG? I have a 1996 2WD 4 cyl 2.4L 5 lug and I’m looking for a way of getting more traction in the snow/ice. I’ll take any advice at this point

    Thanks

    Shouldn't make any difference as long as you don't change the gear ratio.
    LSD should not be engaged that often.
    But maybe you need a 4x4? Don't spend more on the LSD conversion than trading your 4x2 for a 4x4 would cost.
