Default Re: How does idling affect your fuel (Petrol and Diesel) consumption

I would expect Petrol engine to consume marginally more, say 10-20% higher, One more thing: In diesel cars I have not seen the RPM meter go much higher when AC is switched on, unlike in petrol where the RPM meter goes up by around 100 RPM or so
