Yes, I am sharing some my opinions for your question. 1. In operation, the typical 4×4 drive-line connects the engine to the rear wheels through the transmission, and also connects the front wheels to the engine via the transmission and a transfer case. And In operation, the 4×2 vehicle is powered by the rear wheels and steered by the front, as is the convention. 2. Payload capacity and weight of 4×4 truck is more as compare to 4×2 truck. That’s why 4x4 truck use more gas as compared to a 4x2 truck.

A little more. A 4x4 is heavier due to the transfer case, front drive train and larger tires in most cases
Positive: 50 %

Yes. A 4x4 still has to lug around the transfer case, extra driveshaft, differential, hubs, and half shafts of the 4x4 setup.... and extra weight means more power to move it. You don't buy a 4x4 for the gas mileage.
