Ok, so when you get a flat tire, you're supposed to put the car in FWD mode via a fuse. Wouldn't it make sense thagt switching out of AWD would result in higher MPG? I'm thinking that 80% or more of the time in my area there isn't any advantage to AWD for your average 9-5 commuter...

Has anyone tried this? Any negative consequences?
Don't do it, it is not fun at all. The car hops around like crazy, it's really not designed for FWD. You could go out and try it for a few minutes, going around corners and accelerating= huge torque steer and spinning tires (especially if you have an XT)
