Welcome! We can always use another box around here.

I find that with the AC, it helps to put it on recirculate, and turn the AC on and off just enough to be comfortable. Of course, I can get away with a lot less AC use than you can anyway, given the climate here.

@TELVM: The cD is .35, but I'm not sure about the frontal area. It's a small car (based on the Yaris/Echo mechanicals), and not terribly heavy. The aerodynamic compromises more than make up for the fact that it's an unbelievably roomy and practical car.
I know someone (I think Daox) has a chart of cD and frontal area for lots of cars, but I can't remember for the life of me how to find it.
