I ran the A/C for about 30 minutes here in Houston, while the car was parked and it brought the battery down to the "purple" zone, like you described. The engine kicked in every couple of minutes to raise the battery level.

Those darn audio books are addictive!

No it will not.

It was 93 degrees today. Wife had to be driven to the Mall. She went in, I left the car on and the AC on high. Battery went to two bars and the gas motor went on--battery went to three bars. I sat in the car for over forty five minutes with the battery going up and down between two and three bars.

The battery did not discharge even though the AC was on high or Max cold all the time.

Love this car.
