Ok, the engine in your car is also used in much larger vehicles, including minivans, meaning that all your accessories were built for a much larger vehicle with more electronics (dvdplayers, etc).

Your AC, Alternator, Power Steering etc, all take engine power to turn. by slowing down the rate at which the accessories turn, you increase the efficiency of the engine, which increases your miles per gallon.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
