Screen wash

Post by GaryB1972 » Tue Mar 14, 2017 10:16 am

Quick one chaps, I currently use AutoGlym screen -wash, which works well. However is there a better more cheaper option and what is the size of the screen wash tank in the 140?

Autoglym is what I use, wouldn't use anything else. You can buy 5l concentrate from Amazon for £28 ish not sure if it's the same as ultimate screenwash as it's named slightly differently.

The screenwash tank is 3L I think- there might be another thread on here that confirms that though

I use BlueCol -36 as it contains anti-growth agents, helps that nasty bio film (which blocks the pumps + jets) from developing.

The bottle is roughly 1 gallon.

£28 for screen wash?? Blimey!

I just use whatever is on offer at Halfords plus top it up with water! I go through it so quickly I'd be bankrupt at £28 a bottle

On a serious note - I believe the quality of your blades and the general cleanliness of your car has a bigger part to play than the screen wash itself.

If you've kept on top of keeping your car clean and your wiper blade are decent Bosch (or equivalent) then you need not spend all your money on screen wash.

I'm sure I have some kind of magical Mary poppins washer bottle. I've had my car for 7 months and haven't had to top it up at all.
