Car advices: How to save fuel: Air conditioning

If you ever drove a vehicle with a weaker engine certainly have noticed that engine power drops when the air conditioner. This happens because the air conditioner compressor motor power drives the vehicle, which means that the engine uses more fuel when the air conditioning is on.

Of course in the summer heat does not make sense air conditioning shut down, but there is no sense to use it when not too warm. When you park your car in summer, be sure to park in the shade because you will not have to use your air conditioner unnecessarily when you return, and you will be comfortable and be able to start earlier without waiting for the car cool down.
