thoughts on the 2.73 gear ratio with 350/T-350 .... what is your experience with it?

I'm about to install the used rearend with 2.73 ratio i got from the junkyard until i can get the other rearend back from the shop which will be 3.42 posi, 12 bolt. I have a bone stock 350 c.i and a th350 mated with it. I was wondering would the 2.73 be better on gas mileage or hurt gas mileage??? I have always heard the 2.73 will make the combo sluggish/ a complete dog. Or will it give me exceptional fuel economy with the 3 speed th350 and have decent driveability??
