    Question Does Weather affects Vehicle Consumption??

    As clear from title that how a weather affects vehicle consumption??
    I am considering both comparisons with out AC.
    I have my own two observation for the said,

    1. Now a days every car has automatic fan, which starts automatically when engine is hot and stops when engine temperature became normal, so in summer the fan starts more than as compare to winter, so does this affect vehicle consumption because it put some load on alternator and same on engine?

    2. Gas expands on heating, so what you think about CNG in hot summer?, does vehicle give more milage in summer??

    Experts opinions are required so that this might be a good information for most of us.

    from Nov to Feb a Cultus gives approx 135KM / cylinder fill. Aircon works during day.
    from Feb to Nov the same car give approx 110KM / cylinder fill aircon is always on.

    whatever comes from the factory in a car does not overload engine. after market stuff does.

    2ndly for max performance on CNG the pressure at station makes the difference.

    to my experience, best time for CNG fill is early in morning between 7 - 8 am & between 4 - 5 PM in evening. Thats when pumps have max of pressure.

    nice!
    well i have not noticed this uptill now, will definetely check it.
    however my observation says in cool weather the cars and bikes perform better in terms of performance.
    they rev better, they sound better and the throttle response is much better in cold weather than in hot conditions.

    Another addition, in summer the tyres air pressure also increases, this might also give a little load on engine as tyres become over inflated,

    Load on engine increases with under inflated tires, not with over inflated tires.
