Fuel Saving Tips

Keep The A/C On!

Contrary to popular belief, running the A/C in your car does not waste gas! While the A/C compressor does pull its power from the engine, the effect appears to be completely negligible in modern cars. And, with the A/C off, putting the windows down for cooling tends to increase drag on most cars, cancelling out any minimal gain from turning the A/C off. So, turn that A/C on, and not only will you be more comfortable, your mileage should stay the same!
