LOL, I have a method now
The method I use in winter works well in the PNW climate, where my LEAF resides (Vancouver, BC), as we typically have high humidity and so condensation forms really fast on the windshield. I find that AC + HEAT very quickly generates dry, warm air that defogs the windshield in under a minute. Once the windshield is defogged, I switch to partial recirc with heat only. Inevitably, the windshield fogs again, so I have to repeat - over and over again.
The method does
become tedious, I wish there was a climate control option to have the LEAF do that sort of cycling automatically. Typically, I use the above process only when I need the range or if I'm feeling extra patient
Trying to defog using partial recirc with heat only just doesn't work. I could of course switch to HEAT only, four bars of fan speed and that eventually clears the fog. Doing so uses tons of energy though. That's exactly what I do for shorter trips in winter. Also, it's nice to stay warm
I'm guessing that in drier climates, defogging is less of an issue, in which case it likely makes more sense to use partial recirc with heat only and a low fan speed.
