It's front wheel drive, BUT not much weight on the front wheels. Expect traction problems on anything other than flat, paved, dry roads.

I wonder what MPG it could get if you did something with the roof mounted air conditioner, the rear view mirrors, other aero porn, and a grille block. And that rig is just begging for aero wheel covers. And just how rough is the underside? And ....
The vacuum gauge plus wheel covers helped increase summer 2015 mileage to 38.5 MPG, while summer 2016 mileage was 38.6 MPG without the wheel covers. Drove 33,021 miles 2016-2018 at 35.00 MPG.
