I often turn my AC off when accelerating...don't know if it helps FE any, but it alleviates the double load whammy, so it theoretically should. Now that I've got a manual, I'm gonna try turning the AC on during engine braking.

Got numbers on idle fuel flow with AC on/off?

Always use recirc with AC or sense bringing in more hot humid air.

My bike runs on dihydrogen monoxide.
I like to use these acronyms
