Logic says 4WD saps more energy from the drivetrain, thus it will rob you of an extra couple miles per gallong.

Regular cab, 4 cylinder, with manual transmission.

On the automatic transmission it acts as a 4th gear so your engine doesn't rev as high on the highway , your transmission will run cooler and you will get better gas mileage and also the engine will be quieter with the lower revs

No it does not. But it does give you somewhat better gas mileage.

Don't drive agressively. Or you could have just bought a hybrid...

with an automatic four your gas mileage can range between 14mpg and 16mpg. It will vary according to your type of driving. stop and go..obviously less mpg..highway..better mileage. remember a Jeep is for rock climbing and low torque power which is not conduceive to good mileage.
