I was trying to be polite. It was mentioned in the first post.

It might be an easy question but the shorter route is actually 3.5 miles shorter...If I get stuck at every light (which happens about 50% of the time) both routes take about the same time to complete. I'm hoping there is a way to take this in to account. I don't have anything to tell me instant MPG.

My question is how can I figure out if taking the long way is actually worth it or not?
