loaded question .. depends on multiple factors. what vehicle/engine? has it been broken in? how loaded down will it be on your trip? roof rack? towing? Summer or winter driving.

I have had my V6 Lat ADII two years and 8 days. It has been on multiple road trips (family vacations loaded down - not towing/nothing on roof) through mountains and up and down the East coast.

Prior to full break in, I was seeing 8-12 mpg, which was disgusting (after what I have seen about winter temps keeping the vehicle in full time 4dw, I accept the low numbers a tad better). After about 4K miles, I saw mileage in the 18-22K range. Somewhere around 6K, I had consistent 24-26 mpg local and 32-36 mpg on the highway.

I still see a drop when the temps are consistently below 30 degrees (remember full time 4wd), but warmer than that I have pretty darn good mileage with this Jeep.

if the 4 is anything like the 6, it is not broke in yet. This was, BY FAR, the longest break in period I have ever experienced ... 25 plus cars and built engines.

I would say you could/should expect an increase with another 2.5-3K miles on the ODO.
