As you say, not really a lot in it. In a bigger engined/powered car air con makes very little or no difference to economy. Howver, air con in a smaller petrol engined car does sap the power, you notice it going up long steep inclines.

We are currently averaging 53.3mpg in our 1.9dci, air con set to auto nearly all the time, when its off the sunroof is open.

Currently in SportTourer's garage:
