How does the air conditioning work for the Ford Escape Hybrid?
Does anyone know how the air conditioning in the Ford Escape Hybrids work in conjunction with the battery operated engine vs. when the gas engine kicks in? I have been reading different reviews that say anything from: "when the air conditioning is on, so is the gas engine" to "the gas engine only kicks in when the air conditioning is set at the highest level." Obviously this makes a huge difference in what kind of gas mileage you're going to be able to get which is the main reason someone would look at getting the hybrid. Seems like if you're someone who likes to run the air conditioning in the summer a lot, which I am, that the hybrid might not give you that big a benefit from a gas mileage standpoint. Anyone have any feedback or experience with this? If so, your input would be greatly appreciated gds vci
