Default AC turning ON and OFF.

To reduce consumption of fuel and to reduce load on engine I turn my
AC ON and OFF in periodical intervals of 5 minutes while driving on
the blazing southern California streets. Am I doing more harm to my AC
and engine or am I doing the right thing?

The A/C normally cycles the compressor ON/OFF/ON as needed to
maintain set temperature. "Harm" is not the question you should ask.
"Am I saving significant amounts of gasoline" might be a better
question.

BTW, our streets have not really been "blazing" lately unless you
live out in the deserts.

Why not just set the temperature setting a little higher so
it automatically cycles off more often. The switch will
wear out if you keep it up..
