Hi all
does anyone know what is more efficient on fuel

Leaving climate control on all the time or switching it on and off when needed? I was told today that you should just leave it on all time as otherwise the motor has to keep kicking in which uses fuel, but I did think if you left it on all the time it would drink the fuel really quick?

any advice?
Thanks

Just using it when needed is more economical by a long way.

The aircon should be used even if not needed for a few minutes each week so the seals do not get brittle and cause leaks though.

thanks, i dont have air con, only have climate control and i was told leave it on all time as it saves engine kicking in all time??
Whoever is telling you this does not know much about car A/C.

If the A/C is left on all the time that is when it will be "kicking" in and out all the time! When it is switched off it cannot do that.
