Opinions Wanted on Gas Mileage for Wranglers

Hey all ...
I'm a long time Jeep lover and owner. My problem is... I don't know whether I want to trade in my impreza for a 4 door wrangler.
Let me re-phrase, I want to and about the only thing holding me back is gas mileage. I don't have a long commute to work now, maybe 5 miles round trip... but that's now, not 5 years into the future.

Just looking for some opinions, suggestions, etc.
I really want to get back into a Wrangler but ... is the poor gas mileage worth it?? This is hard for me to answer!

You are asking if owning a Wrangler is worth it, on a Wrangler forum? I think the overwhelming answer to your question will be yes. People don't buy Wranglers for great gas mileage, they buy them for the life style.

I also suggest you check out this forum area and post your questions there, I think you'll get a better response.

MPGs are hardly stellar. OTOH, *SPGs are off the chart!

*Smiles Per Gallon. YMMV, and invariably will...

Buy the Wrangler, keep the current job until the Jeep is paid for, buy another vehicle that gets better mpg and keep the Wrangler for a second funner vehicle. (Yes I wrote funner)
