I really don't see why it would effect it. I also doubt there has been any real research on this

yes, because by adding tube fenders you add bigger tires, adding bigger tire causes your milage to go down, they do not directly effect it but you get the drift.

Here is a thread from another forum where having flat-fenders was considered to be the cause of poor mileage.

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.

Flat fenders may make you a little less aerodynamic but the jeep already has the aerodynamic properties of a sheet of ply wood so I don't think tube fenders will really make the much difference.
