Can anyone tell me if it is bad for the air conditioning to shut down the Cummins when the A/C is still on?If so, why?Does anyone know why my 93 CTD would be getting better mileage at around 365,000 miles than before?I used to get only 465 miles average down to a quarter tank. Recently I'm getting around 535 miles when down to a quarter tank. Is it just broken in?T.I.A.

No. No harm will come to either the engine or the A/C. Just that you might get dog's breathe after awhile from mildew that might form in the A/C evaporator. Typically its a good idea to shut down near home and let just the vent blow to dry the evaporator out a bit. But even that will not cause any harm just funky smell.

Could be... :whistle: Or there could be other things going on that might of worked in your favor... Fuel differences, weather / climate is warmer, driving style change, etc.
