Pulling a 4 wheeler. 97 Wrangler or 94 Accord?
 
Just got a Wrangler a few months ago. I'm pulling my 4 wheeler across several states. I'd like to use my 94 Honda Accord because it gets better gas mileage. It has pulled it around fine locally. Both cars are 4 cylinder manual transmissions. Does it really matter which one I use?

If by 4-wheeler you mean a quad like a Raptor or Banshee or something, I'd probably say either is fine. Towing is more about wheel-base, then engine power (which is important too of course). If you're pulling with the Accord fine, well I don't advise towing with a car but I've seen worse. You probably also have more usable power with the Accord, and I wouldn't be surprised if the weights pretty similar, but I'm too lazy to check.
