Depends on how it was maintained like anything else...

The 4.7 is reliable, agitatedpancake has over 200k on his and still going strong.

Stock I got around 17-18mpg mixed city/highway, mostly highway. (***** footing around though)

If its a limited then you should check to see if it has faulty blend door...

If your looking to buy a Jeep, then you have already made a consious (sp) decesion to throw fuel economy out the window. Aerodynamics are overrated.
