soon to be Jeep newbie

Greetings All,
Driving trucks all my life, Pickups, vans, ramchargers and Wife even has a 2005 Avalanche Z71 right now. Thinking of retiring my present daily commuter for something that gets better than the 11mpg I am getting now. It is a 2001 Dodge 3/4 ton 4x4 with the 360 motor and 130,000 miles. I will be doing 92 miles round trip each day. While looking at some other AWD's a 2012 white Sahara Unlimited Wrangler caught my eye. After taking it for a ride I think I am HOOKED ! Plan on purchasing one in July this year. What would I realisticley get for mpg doing 45mph on roads for 26 miles then say 55mph another 20 down a highway ?
Thanks for all replies.
Rob .....

welcome! all things being equal (and they aren't in Jeeps, of course), I'd say you're in for 16-22 MPG.
