Question about 1998 Subaru Forester
The Forested is AWD, not 4WD. I do not think you can switch this vehicle to 2WD, the 4 wheel drive is automatic and always on. Here the difference about AWD and 4WD.
About the consumption, clean the sensors in the air intake (MAP and IAT), check for vacuum leaks, and do a code scanning to see if there are diagnostic trouble codes stored in the PCM.

Hi, as an experienced person on this field, the four wheel drive has nothing to do with the consumption of fuel in your car. Either you use it or not, it consumes the normal fuel usage except you have some other problem with your car....
You can use my tips below to know some of the reasons why your car is using too much gas
Tire Pressure Under-inflated or over-inflated tires can negatively affect gas mileage and pose safety issues. Check the sidewall of the tires to see what the ideal tire pressure is and use a tire pressure gauge to see how your tire pressure compares.
Air Filters A dirty air filter can reduce your gas mileage. Checking it, or having it checked every time you have the oil changed, and changing it when necessary can help increase your fuel efficiency.
Faulty spark plugs, dragging brakes, kinked vacuum lines and faulty fuel injectors can cause your car to use more fuel than you think it should. Take your car to a mechanic; he should be able to identify the problem.
