In my old Chevy Aveo, putting on the AC felt like deploying a parachute. I can still feel the hit on the Fiat, but it isn't as bad. 2hp sounds about right. Of course, I don't think the Fiat AC is as good...

haha 2HP!

AC systems put a lot of strain on the engine, hence why some automotive news blogs and websites say if you want to get better MPG`s, stop using your AC! or at least stop being excessive with it.

This summer I moved my car to get shade once or twice a day, kept it from getting too hot. Also I leave the windows open about 1/2 in. I found that just laying a sun shield on the dash works well with the large windows.
