CJ-2 and CJ-3 fuel economy

I know, I know, they're vintage vehicles, so who cares about fuel economy? I have my reasons, but driven largely by simple curiosity, I'm wondering what the mgp figures might be for the old CJ-2 and CJ-3 Jeeps with 4-cylinder engines. Were they gas guzzlers? I have no idea. Thanks for any responses!

Yup. anywhere from mid single digits to upper teens/low twenties.

You also have to keep in mind those original flathead motors are not near as efficient as today's motors.
