    Default Noticable power loss when Air-con is on

    I'm just wondering is it my imagination or does the 1.9cdti 150 seem noticably down on power when the air conditioning is switched on?

    I have noticed that my car feels much more lethargic and I will have to drop a gear in situations that I wouldnt have to if the air-con was off.

    I would expect this in a 1.2L or similar but not a car with 150bhp.
    Anybody else noticed this?

    Has the AC ever been regassed? Maybe it's getting slightly low and the compressor is having to work that bit harder to compensate.
