Exclamation AC Setting

Hello Guyz,

Just a Question about AC.

Nissan TIIDA 2012 Sedan

As Iím from State of Qatar. AC is Basic need here So as we know turning ON the AC in the Car will cost some extra Fuel. I wonder keeping the Fan to High (I mean 3 or 4) will cost me more fuel than keeping the fan to 1 or 2?

Coz If the fuel consumption is same regardless which fan setting (1 / 2 / 3 / 4) I would like to keep always to the high Thatís the main reason why Iím asking this question.


Thank you in advance,

There is a very slight difference but not much at all. The fan at higher speeds simply pulls a bit more refrigeration out of the evaporator to make the a/c clutch stay engaged a bit more.

Not to disagree but I think the AC is connected to the fan speed: If set on one the compressor (toggles off and on) does not come on as often. I have noticed a large difference in gas mileage if I run the fan on 4. If you set the fan on 4 the compressor stays on all the time....it's like max air conditioning.

To make it the coldest put it on inside air, vent and high blower speed. I like cool air on my feet and face, but using that setting reduces the coldness of the air.

I typically start off with it on outside air, then after a few miles switch to inside and it really cools off.

On blower setting 3 it is noticeable in my 5 speed and I need to change my shift points. On blower speed 4 it starts to become a dog to drive. I dont really track my mpg, but just glance it at the screen on the dash. I see from 41 to 35 mpg.

Owh Yeah. That is how I do it either.
As its super hot here (45 Degree Celsius is normal in summer time) I used to keep the windows 1 inch open when I park (Of course only if I'm sure it's safe) to avoid some Green house impact

After start the car I used to Run the Fan only (without turning ON the AC) with outside Air on 3 or 4 Speed also all windows opened. After driving for few mins, I will shut the windows, than AC ON than Turning into inside Air

Thanks for sharing your ideas mate

It is easy to bring the price down. Just increase the oil production.
