Whatever is on the shelves of a supermarket or other shop is what usually goes in there. i don't think I've ever bought the so called quality stuff and the screen is clean enough after i've given the wipers a quick blast..

I buy mine from Vauxhall, their tradeclub stuff, not optiplex.

This time of year it goes in neat so i can keep the screen clear even wehn very cold outside.  Should be down to -20 iirc

Always seems to be 10 a box of 4x5 litre

Last time I bought Vauxhall Opticlean at Bellinger Grove I was charged 20 for 5 litres. They are no longer a trade club source.

I always buy it from where ever is cheapest Lidl, Aldi, Tesco, Halfords... Mix it 25:75 with tap water and bung it in.  It's always worked just fine.  :y

Screen wash is not something that keeps me awake at night.   :P

It surprised me how much Vauxhall's screen wash was when I bought some a few weeks ago. Fortunately Paula at Wigan gave me standard trade discount which reduced it to about 16 per 5 litres

Delivered it was 10.47 for 25 litres (concentrated)

Bloody hell!

How much was it before the discount? Putting that in would represent a not insignificant uplift in the value of most cars on this forum!  ;D

I`m still using the Halfords -10 stuff, l bought a couple of bottles a couple of weeks ago and it was still 4.99 for 5l.

Still smells nice too  :y
The -10C is around 3.50 on trade.  The -20C is around 5.50, and I figure you can dilute further.

The premix -20C is a lot cheaper, but not sure if that can be further diluted?

Screen wash is not something that keeps me awake at night.   :P
And it shouldn't be, before this ECP/TripleQX wank fiasco, my concerns with certain types previously was removing flies that had had their arses rammed through their heads at 130mph.

But I do utterly insist on screenwash that doesn't freeze at the first sign of being slightly chilly, and if it has cleaning ability, that is also to be welcomed.

It can be 50p for 1000l, if its only going to get tipped down the drain, that still represents poor value ;)
