Yes, you are correct, I originally posted in the FEH forum because I was looking for specifics on a/c use with the FEH, but all input received is greatly appreciated. There was absolutely no a/c mileage penalty on my old DD, so I never gave it a second thought - if I was hot, I turned it on.

My very first DD was a 1965 389 CI 360 HP tri-power GTO without power steering or brakes - I didn't care about fuel economy just being the fastest in town !!
