    I would be very skeptical of 25mpg. My isuzu box truck gets 12mpg.

    How about the '87-'01 Jeep Cherokee w. the 4.0L Inline-6? They have alot of HP and torque (190 HP, 225 ft. lbs. torque), and they last a long time. Only get the manual transmission though. The automatic transmissions are bad. My friend had one, and he pulled a 16' trailer with it, and it did very well, and also got over 20 mpg.

    My sister has a 96 grand cherokee with the 4.0 and the auto. Averages about 16mpg according to the computer on it without towing anything. I've never checked it by hand or towed anything more then one atv with it to see.
