Your Welcome!

I have always noticed an increase in mpg's with the A/C off normally between 1 to 2 mpg better.
When my A/C is on the compressor stays locked the hole time the A/C is on but the temps here are 90 to 100 degrees all summer & the humidity is around 90%.

It is!
I remember those days when I lived in Iowa I don't miss them.
I remember the day I packed the truck & the horses to head to Iowa it was 89 degrees in Texas the day I left Nov. 14, 1994 I had shorts and a T shirt on by the time I reach Iowa it was -25 and the wind was blowing 15 mph when I went to unload the horses they looked at me like have you lost your mind I was thinking the same thing had never experienced those kind of temperatures had lived my hole life in Texas. I did get use to it I still were shorts here in Texas if the temp is above 20 degrees everyone looks at me like i have lost my mind especially my wife.
