I think I remember some news group doing a test with the A/C on then off and it did not change the MPG or anything.

The MythBusters did a test like that using Ford Expeditions. According to the scanner they had, the SUV got better MPG (According to the PCM in the Expedition) with the AC full blast and windows up. When they actually tested it on the track, the SUV that was driving with windows down and no AC went 30-40 (If I remember correctly) miles more before running out of gas. 2 Exact SUVs, same payload, 5 gallons of gas cruising at 55mph at a NASCAR track.

16.5 MPG, mostly during the city commute. About 260-280 miles per tank. Highway hasn't broken into the 20's yet, but I rarely drive below 70
