One other thing should be added regarding the preset engagement of the A/C compressor: the temperature selection has no effect upon it. The temperature setting could be at full cold with A/C off and the compressor will still be turned on once the vent selector position is reached which will automatically engage it.

BTW, my fuel economy takes a 10% loss in MPG when the air conditioning is regularly on.

Well first fill up since starting this and the results are in- picked up at least 1.3 mpg this last tank making sure the AC compressor never kicked in.

I topped the tank off a bit more than usually because I found cheap gas. Itís probably actually closer to 2 mpg increase. Which would be pretty close to the 10% Pierrot mentioned.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
