    What screenwash?

    Just a thought but I normally buy the high strength Halfords stuff, keeps my washer jets ice-free down to ~-6c on the MFD if I add enough to the washer bottle.

    Anyone else use anything specific for your washers?

    a small drop of window cleaning products with water...

    i dont usually use the squirters though, the stuff i use to clean my windscreen makes the water stream off it at 40mph, so generally windscreen never that dirty

    Ditto but on those salty days in the winter it is useful, and it also stops the washer motors freezing up and breaking...

    i use the ready mixed halfords stuff, not because im lazy and dont want to mix concentrate, but round here the water is hard and so it leaves marks where the water runs down the drivers side of the window

    Not sure what the name on the bottle is. Some no-name though i guess

    Put it in quite strong, but it doesn't matter - the jets still freeze up even though it was supposed to protect against quite low temps.

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
