I use it about half of the time these days in my Yaris LB. Do not know if turning the temperature knob back a little can help save some fuel and/or improve the A/C's efficiency and/or life expectancy.

Out of the 4 cars I've owned (+ 1 truck), all started w/ A/C and the last three have had it removed, proving my efficiency OCD is just getting worse. I'll agree w/ Atomic that in NC this week it has been 98-101 for days straight and I've been baking like a roast in my '85 CRX Si, which also doesn't have much of the interior left so I get burned now and again from the bare metal. I wear a bandana to keep the sweat off and always keep a bottle of water nearby, just in case. While driving it's bearable but in traffic it's ungodly but I just find solace that my FE is better than the guy beside me, A/C cranked like a hurricane. Mak

I haven't used a/c in years. I don't even use fans in my house now. Temps indoors get up to 85, but I've just accustomed myself to it. But I do live in central NY, so I guess it's not as hot as down south.

Well, normally I'd be just as happy without it...I drove for quite a while in CA without a/c, and never really missed having it. House didn't have a/c, either. Even today, it feels like a cop-out to me to use a/c, just because I'm not totally used to it.

But it's a different story here...it never got hot in CA like it does here in Texas. Plus, cars these days don't have vent windows, so you really don't get that great airflow into the car with the windows down. The net result is that I run a/c more often than I otherwise would want to.

If you keep your house at 85 or so, you just get used to the heat, and you're fine pretty much anywhere. Drink water.
