Chevrolet Cruze: I live in AZ. Could I save gas if I was to

I live in AZ. Could I save gas if I was to lower the force or raise the temp of the air conditioner?

Greetings and welcome to the website!!!!

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try to help you with your question today.

Whether the a/c is on low or high will not effect the gas mileage. the only way the a/c would save gas is if you turn it off, then the clutch is not engaged on the compressor and causing the extra load on the engine. The blower for the a/c has nothing to do with gas mileage.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address any follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
