Air conditioners use gas

Use your air conditioner as sparingly as possible, because your engine uses extra energy to power the air conditioner compressor. The fuel efficiency of your vehicle can be increased by up to 10 percent on the highway and up to 15 percent in the city when you don't use your air conditioner.

I would like to ask why you recommend using the air conditioner as little as possible, then go on to say that fuel consumption is INCREASED when you DON'T use the air conditioner. I think there may be a slight problem with your wording there.
