Air Con

It is recommended air con be used at least every week or so - if you don't you can up with a serious pong in the system - smells like vomit - if you don't use it you may loose it. Remember air conditioning is not just about warming or cooling the incoming air - it also regulates the humidity. Warm dry air feels much colder than warm wet air.

Only time my air con is switched off, is when the engine is switched off!!

Always have it switched on for the reasons mentioned above, and have done in every a/c equipped car I've driven.

Some people say I'm stark raving bonkers, the others just smile and nod...
