You can switch the AC on during in gear accelerations, taking advantage of DFCO. See:
I've found that when I do that, it isn't good, the volts drop down, and when they do I have less pickup and use more gas. the Jeep also shakes from lack of sparking power. I get the best mpg's when I'm running almost 15 volts. and at night my dash lights are brighter

Yea.. I drive a Jeep and I'm on a fuel economy site, but you just wouldn't understand... "It's a Jeep thing!" *Jeep Wave*
