Cd or weight?

Imagine that you are buying a new vehicle to modify for fuel economy. You plan on using this vehicle for 50/50 city and highway driving. You have narrowed your choices down to two vehicles which are virtually identical except for the following:

Vehicle A has a 10.0 Cd advantage over Vehicle B.

Vehicle B weighs 1000 lbs less than Vehicle A.

Which one would you choose, and why?
