    Iyong thermostat kasi ay setting kung gaano kalamig sa loob ng car. Mas malamig means na mas madalas naka on ang compressor. Compressor on = fuel consuption.

    Pag tangahaling tapat at nabilad nag car, pag on ng aircon at sinagad, matatagalan bago mag stop ang compressor. equates to lower FC.

    Iyong fan consumes electricity being generated by the alternator, the alternator is powered bg the engine - FC pa rin. Pero mas mahina ang contribution ng pagbaba ng FC ang fan kaysa sa alternator.

    So for me, better na malakas ang fan, pero mababa lang ang setting ng thermostat.

    May mga gumagawa ng baliktad, almost sagad ang thermostat pero naka 1 lang nag fan. pag patay sindi daw ang compressor, mas madaling masira ito. Mahal pa naman daw ng compressor.

    Tiny correction: I think you mean masmataas ang FC (fuel consumption)...

    My car's temperature wheel indicates 18C as cold setting, 22C as in between, and 26C has warm setting. When I drive it depends on the ambient temps, malamig na ngayon sa California kaya middle setting ako usually with minimal blower speed. Tipid rin kasi walang compressor use.

    Sorry, baliktad nga pala. pag tumataas ang number ng FC (Km per liter) tumitipid pag bumababa ang number, nagiging magastos.

    Mataas na consumo => Low number na FC
    Mahina na consumo => High number na FC

    For me, rule of thumb is: unnecessary use of aircon equals waste of fuel. A 25deg setting means the aircon works less often than the 18deg setting. Note also, everytime the aircon compressor works means more load on the engine, which means reduction on the life effeciency of your engine. Think about it. Choice is yours.

    Wag na lng mag aircon, longer life for the engine.
    But seriously, the more load for the engine, the lesser the FC. Yun lng...not life efficiency.

    Mine's set at 22C

    Para sa akin naman, dahil FC means "Fuel CONSUMPTION", tama lang na mataas ang konsumo pag HIGH number ang FC. CONSUMPTION of fuel means how many liters per 100km (or per km, if you want).

    You might have been referring to FUEL EFFICIENCY (km/liter or MPG), like in this webpage: http://www.wikihow.com/Calculate-Your-Car%27s-Fuel-Efficiency-(MPG)

    Nasa 40% ang thermostat dial ko most of the time. Kung sobrang init, 50%. Di ko lang sure kung ano talaga ang temp. setting nun. Hehe.

What's your aircon temperature setting?
