Uhhhhhh you don't have a 2012 Yj.......I think you posted in the wrong forum. If you have a 2012 Wrangler, that is a JK Wrangler.
I would take it back to where you got it and tell them to tell you why the mileage is that bad. Are the tires stock?

Being in 4wd would be quite noticable leaving gas millage the least of his worries.. my guess is your heavy on the gas at lights or more like just enjoying your new Jeep.. 12mpg is on the low end of the low side of what I would expect you to get.. two things.. go easier on the skinny pedal and also do the millage calculations by hand as sometimes the computer isn't correct when reading your mpg
