Re: Petrol Gauge...
When you consider the alternative to aircon (open windows) and the impact that would have on the aerodynamics of your car, stick to A/c.
The single biggest cause of failure in A/c is seals failing due to lack of lubrication, allowing the refrigerant to escape. If you run your A/c every day it constantly keeps the seals lubricated. The more you use it, the better it works.
Mines on every time I drive the car, winter, summer, rain or shine. Even in winter it helps, as it drys the air in the car and reduces misting.
