Re: Different between Aircon off and Aircon on
redd - are you positive that radiator fan is always running when the a/c is on? As my doesnt. When I start aicon in idle, I get a drop in revs as the compressor starts and some slight vibration, but in 2 seconds, everything is back in normal. And the fan doesnt start. It starts only in trafic jams or after some fast drive in mountains with relatively low speeds in high revs.
Btw, driving outside the city, aircon rises the consumption 5-7 % in my case.
