Windows Down/air Con

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if having the air con on uses more fuel than having it off with the windows/sunroof open creating a parachute effect?

You don't want to have it off with the windows open. You'll get nicked.

Sorry. It's Friday.

Aircon is supposed to guzzle 1-2 mpg more. Not a big deal, plus they reckon to prolong the life of a/c systems you should run them once a month, even in the winter!

I recently returned from Europe road trip where my 12 year old LS400 was returning 23mpg with a/c on and cruise control set and I was doing pretty high triple digit speeds the whole time...Go figure!

If you want to save money there are a few options:

1) rip out the A/C and sell the bits to Maneesh,

2) sell the whole car and buy one without a/c thus saving a lot more than you would on petrol. If posing is all you want buy a Jag they're cheaper,

3) take a cold shower every few miles.

Moral of the story: Why buy an expensive car if you can't afford to use it? If you wanna be a second class citizen try walking.
