Maybe that part wasn't so clear...still getting fogging issues when the CC is not set to econ.  Unless it's pretty dry out, a rare occasion here in Washington, I run the CC on Auto, which best I can tell runs the AC compressor.

Today fogging wasn't that bad.  Same temperature, just no precipitation.
