for the past 3 days i have had to scrap ice off my car about 4 to 5 times aday and its getting a pain in the a***
so i was wondering what other people use to get the ice from they cars or how to stop it,
You could sprinkle salt over your windscreen.
However I prefer the turn engine on, make a cuppa, drink cuppa get in cars lovely and toasty and defrosted ready for the off.
Although its not recommended to leave your car idling for long periods its also bad to drive your car whilst the oil/engine is cold. So catch 22. I know which one I prefer though
Its a jam thing
Haec credam a deo pio, a deo justo, a deo scito?
get a remote engine start fitted. Had one fitted to my old rs turbo.Been toying with the idea of getting one for the astra.
Just because you can doesn't mean you should.
get a cover for the windscreen
Just use water.
Fill a 4 pint plastic milk carton (wash it out thoroughly first )
Leave it in the house, be more than enough to melt the ice/frost in the mornings.
Throw it in the car when empty, re-fill it up at night ready for the next day.
Been doing this for 20 years with no problems.
You could cover the windows with an old blanket or card board,
or get a half car cover this just covers the roof and all windows,
they are not expensive and would save you all the scraping,
you can get them in halfords or any decent motorfactors
