In my case, I take the shorter route. It has more stop LIGHTS, but less stop SIGNS. Stop lights aren't always red. Stop SIGNS are ALWAYS red. Fuel economy is about the same for either route, so the shorter route saves fuel.
My longest route to work takes about the same time as the shorter routes, but gets the lowest MPG of the three. I've never used it since I figured out that fact.
YMMV.
