I use the Aldi stuff.  No complaints.

Ditto.. still working on the four bottles I bought years ago ;D Then again, I did let the Skoda dealer fill the washer bottle (for "free") at the last service </laziness>

Fikkin'eck, both the Shag and TBE empty the screenwash in under 2 weeks this time of year.  That's over a can per car, per fortnight :o

In TBE, it just Mrs TB. Yes, I swear she sellotapes the lever into the wash position.

In the Shag, it pops the lights on at the first sign on not having bright sunlight, and the headlamp washers chuck it out at an alarming rate.

The Skoda seems much more frugal in that regard compared to the BMW, especially the E46 I had which pumped out a veritable fountain. As my friends discovered when they were checking the lights after we'd put the bumper back on and I pulled the wrong stalk ;D ;D :-X

Mine needed about 2 litres a year until I fixed the headlight washers. I've just filled it up with 4 litres.


I still don't consider anything that's diluted 1:1 as being concentrated.
Try this stuff, which is 1:100 :y

Surely that's likely to be no better (mixed at their quantities of 1 bottle to 2.5-4l of water) that the TripleQX shite that I used to clean the drains?

I've used it, and it works fine. But so does every other brand I've used.

So I topped up the Zaf today, as it was complaining it was low. Mixed up a strongish batch in 5L tub, only about half went in. Suggests it has 3L capacity.  :o

Is that average now or is the Omega one just gigantic at 6.3L?

I'm forever topping up ours in this weather, neither seem to hold much at all.
