i've always been told that jeeps get relatively bad mileage for their size and weight. i've been wondering, what exactly about them is it that gives them bad mileage.... is it the shape, their engines or something else, a buddy of mine said something about how the front drive shaft is always turning so it makes the engine work harder. if any1 can tell me why, i'd love to know. thanks yall

News to me. I haven't heard that Jeeps get bad mileage. Please, don't tell my Jeep. It doesn't know it is supposed to burn more gas than it does.

To all who serve, Thank You.

Depends on the year. The fuel injected, 1991-1995 YJ's would be the best of the bunch, being that they have the most sophisticated fuel injection. But other than that, shape plays a big part, as they are about as aerodynamic as a brick. The always spinning front axle probably contributes some but I would not imagine a whole lot.
