86 Suburban 454 starts then shuts down. Starts okay but won’t stay running. Any suggestions before I have it towed to my car doctor. This might be a hint MPG went from 10 to 6 in the last two months

I have an 8.5, 10-bolt rear end. It currently has a 2.56 ratio with a chewed up ring gear. Which is great because I couldn't stand this dog much longer. I have a TH350C tranny with a mild shift kit and no stall in the converter. The engine is an old 305 which I will swap at some point. I'm running 30" tires now and will probably never run bigger than 32". I hardly ever tow anything. If I do it would be a lawnmower trailer. I use it for work about 4-8 times a month which is 20 miles away. Occasionally I get on the interstate where I would be running 70-80 mph. I will never be taking long trips or off-roading. I want to go from 0-60 as fast as possible and still be able to run 70 mph for 30 minutes without the engine screaming too bad. Fuel efficiency is not a concern at all.

I've looked at the rpm charts, but I don't have a tach so I'm not really sure what range my engine likes. But as I said it will be swapped at some point. Maybe a 350 or possibly an LS with a 700R4.

So what gear ratio would you recommend for my rear end rebuild?
