Hi everybody, I'm new on this forum and after having a look at the topics I didn't found the answer to my question...
I own a 87 suburban, 6.2L diesel, 2x4 with the 3 gears transmission and the body is completly rusted (that's fun to live in Canada :evil: ) so I'm about buying a "new" suburban (still the same genereation : before 91).
I found a 87 2x4, diesel and a 90 4x4 diesel. Both have the 4 gear transmission and the price is almost the same... so I'm wondering if the difference of MPG is very different between those 2 cars.

Thanks a lot

Ben

RE: 2x4 or 4x4 ?

The 4x4 is going to be a little heavier, but I'm not certain if the extra weight costs that much at the pump between the 2WD and the 4WD. What part of canada are we talking about, btw?

RE: 2x4 or 4x4 ?

allright thank you very much !
I found the 1990 4WD : 3.25 US$/25 miles so it's not so bad compared to the 87 2WD.
I'll go for the 1990 (just have to check again for the rust)
