Gas mileage 4vs6 cyl

Still looking to buy my first jeep . Need info on 4 or 6 cyl ,what kind of mileage do I expect from each. Thats stock setup. And how much power diffrence is there between each. I have never driven one. What should I stay away from when looking at a used jeep.Thanks Tony

Gas mileage will be about the same, no matter what... expect close to 17 in stock form, but only if your easy on the skinny pedal.

4 cyl. engines work at a much higher RPM than a 6 does. My 6 normal rpm is around 2-2500 where as the 4cyl ran around 4,000 if my memory is correct. The 6 just has a better reputation when it comes to longevity.
