Re: What are you using as windshield washer fluid?

I use this and have never had a problem. I live in the Great Lakes snow belt, so I see plenty of sever winter weather. $1.99/gal, but goes on sail for much less. Autozone.

Re: What are you using as windshield washer fluid?

I'm intrigued by this 303 stuff. We get a LOT of bugs this time of year, but I'm leary to use the rain-x bug formula because it gets cold before too long & I need the non-freezing stuff. I'm currently using the orange rain-x. Generally speaking, it works good, but it won't get rid of everything.

I noticed on the website for the 303 products, that you can add tabs to "anti-freeze washer fluid" for the winter. I assume it would be ok to add these to any washer fluid? A shop near my house sells them & I want to pick some up, but want to make sure I'm not going to do any damage, clogging the lines or anything, before I do.

The buck ninetynine stuff from Tarjay also seems to work quite well.
One brand is Peak, don't even recall the other name.

Both work better than Dom Perignon, possibly with less alcohol though.

-20 rating? You must live in a warm climate, 'cause that ain't gonna cut it here in Canada! Your reservoir would be a solid block of ice! LOL!

I bought the -30F stuff in the past, but have not seen it around here in years.

Re: What are you using as windshield washer fluid?

i use RainX fluid... works great at beading water off the windshield at speed and also helps to prevent ice from really sticking on very cold mornings.

Same here, yet I've not seen $0.99 washer fluid in years.

Though living here in MN, I always make sure it's the winter stuff.
I got caught once by a sudden freeze with my Audi and summer mix....
Spent a long time with the headlights on (head light washers) running the washer pump intermittently to empty out the summer stuff after the engine thawed it out....

Naww, just be careful not to squish the worm against the windshield.
