Awesome. I'll give it a try. The a/c unit is a real fuel hog, and although I like to send air to the windshield at times, I don't like the fact that it's dragging a/c into the equation.

I find that with a/c on it easily sucks 10% more fuel than when I drive without it. Such a pig!

The bolded part is the reason why I'm uncertain. Supposedly, in the interests of fielding less questions about the a/c, the Subaru engineers decided not to turn the a/c light on when in defrost mode.

In any case, it should (hopefully) be apparent whether or not the tip works when I try it next time it gets steamy in my car...
