Fuel Saving Tips

Don't use your Automatic Climate Control!

On many higher end vehicles the climate control system will have an "auto" setting much like a home would however the vehicle will almost always automatically engage the A/C system even if cooling is not required, the system also typically runs in defrost/floor vent position which runs the vehicles A/C even though the A/C button is turned off. To prevent unnecessary use of A/C when you don't required cooling or defogging of windows manually switch the climate control to face or face/foot vent position and make sure the A/C button is off. This will ensure the compressor doesn't kick in unless you activate it manually.
