You can download the EPA mpg figures from here:
http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/download.shtml

and you can see that identical models with AWD and 2WD get different mpg numbers - same engine, transmission, etc. just with AWD or 2WD. That means that the adjustment for the different drivetrains is already compensated for, so any vehicle rated at 36 mpg highway should get the same mpg under the same highway conditions.
