Default 98 accord single cell radiator/AC usage

Hi HAF, I am using accord 98 Lx, 4cylinders, auto trans, 2.3L. I am about to make a journey of 276km(3hrs 39mins)to my hometown in Nigeria in two weeks. How do i know how much fuel the AC will consume if i am to put the AC on throughout that journey non-stop. The single cell radiator that came with the car is working normally, no leaks or whatsoever but with the AC on throughout that journey(276km) will it not overheat the engine? Because my thinking is that double cell radiator will be better for long journey. Although i have being advice on this forum not to change it since there is no leaks. Presently the only problem with the car is whenever i turn the steering to the left at bends it makes clunking sound repeatedly but when moving straight ahead no sound. What are the likely cause? Hoping to hear from you. Thanks

If it's not overheating in regular traffic driving, it will do fine on the road. Forward speed provides more ram air than fans. Fans probably never run while driving at speed.

good luck
