mpg a/c

Does not using the a/c increase MPG, with the windows up?

i dont know if not using the ac will improve the mpgs. gas engines yes thats a big one but im not sure on diesels.


i wouldnt idle a diesel that long anyway....unless the ac was running and theres stuff or people in the cab, then i dont care. but if the ac isnt working, i wouldnt be using it till its repaired to save the ac compressor.

windows up and AC on full blast is better on MPG than leaving the windows down at highway speeds.
