Fuse Size for Disabling AWD?

I have to caution you, if you are doing this for an increase in MPG, its been tried, and it dosn't work. its also a sure fire way of blowing up your tranny, if you leave it for months at a time.
If you got a flat, and have a T type spare, by all means, but this isn't a solution for MPG.

not too mention...what if, somehow that one dinky circuit went bad or the fuse popped or something...then what? the car takes off with people standing in front of it and through the doors it goes?
no way i say, refuse the fuse.

Actually, you may be exempt from the dyno test! Don't offer to put in the fuse, then they have to come up with a 4 wheel dyno. Yeah, Subaru!
I need to have the car emission tested in Illinois and merely wish to be prepared to disable AWD if necessary. I was walking through how to do this when I discovered that the owner's manual does not specify a fuse size.

All that being said, should I ever need to use the spare, I am still unsure what fuse to use to disable AWD!

it's not a big deal. you could install any fuse in your fuse box whether it be a 15, 20, 25, or 30 and all will work just fine without issue.
