3.0 and underdrive pulley MPG gain

Hi all , I have a 05 Edge 4x2 auto 4.10 gears 235/75-15 tires.
I was just wondering if the underdrive pulley will give me a little boost in MPG.
Anyone have hard numbers on MPG gain?

I'm getting 22.7 mpg highway and 19.2 city now .

any other mileage enhancers that work, I don't need more power as such, just looking for MPG boosters.
Thanks MaxB

Here's a dyno sheet of a 3.0 with just pulleys running full synthetic. You'll probably get 2-3 more mpg but you'll get more if you add a tuner on top of that.

Naaa that doesn’t suck. I like getting 23 mpg and a V-8 is fun for a while but putting money in the pocket of big oil companies is what sucks.
