    I just googled the episode and your right they did find that windows up & a/c gave better fuel economy per the computers but when they actually ran the cars on 5 gallons of fuel, the windows down & a/c off ran farther than the a/c. I think the right foot has more to do with it than anything else.

    I think this is the answer!
    I run windows up and A/C on...... and get over 20 consistantly in the summer. My winter mileage is what goes down.
