At idle, in NEUTRAL, AC Fuel flow is .16gph higher (in my case - .25gph No AC to .41 gph W/ AC)
Thanks for the info Harpo. What's your rpm at DFCO trigger?

I'm going to assume that the same applies to my ride And I think I'm not far off, been trying DFCO for decel this tank and my odo at 1/2 tank (accurate I know) jumped from 225 to 280 this tank!

I also tried an AC/DFCO experiment. Coming down from a bridge (since we don't have hills ) I noticed that in gear there is definitely added drag when the AC is on. AC off, the car seems to slow down less quickly. I pushed the button several times going down and I could feel it. No good data, but I did A-B-A-B-A

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