    I experimented a little and found, with my Leaf at least, that the climate timer turns on the setting that I left when I set the timer. In my case I turned off the auto and turned on the AC, and that's what came on with the timer. It did however switch it to recirculate rather than outside, but that would be the better option if you have moist air outside, in my opinion. The AC should do a better job of dehydrating the small amount of air in the car, if new humid air isn't constantly being introduced from outside.

    Love the report and how well you describe how good the leaf is
    but i can't let "its schizophrenic range prediction"
    pass without comment,
    it's probably an inappropriate use of a specific mental health term? You're describing erratic, difficult to comprehend behaviour of the range meter, not schizophrenia? http://www.mind.org.uk/

    Thanks for your post. It's reassuring to know that the battery is performing well despite the frequent 100% charging cycle you have used. Please let us know what your battery report shows at 15,000 miles.

    I use the pre-heat less than I would have hoped for because of the heavy fogging. Pre-heating in the morning in our garage works well. It's the return journey when its parked outside that doesn't work as well.

    Happy EV motoring.

    Mine turns the AC on when the scheduled pre-heat starts.

    Well, we do have a garage the Leaf sits in and we've never experienced any moisture inside, with the pre-heat feature. There's been raining a lot.
