Road A is a straight line.
Road B road goes up and down.
Road A, being a straight line, is less of a distance than the constant elevation change of road B. Your computer will show you better mpg's on Road A, but you most likely burn less gas on road B because it is a shorter route.

That is my take on it anyways. If you can EOC road B might be worth it.
