Sorry im a bit new to this, can anyone explain what happened here...i got a 1 litre bottle of carplan screenwash from a store...i started to put it into the thing, i didnt see anything...so i kept doing it, and ended up putting in the whole bottle of 1 Litre, i still cant see the stuff, its like going down a bottomless pit lol, is this common? how much screenwash does it take to fill it up?

I've never had screen wash that wasn't a concentrated solution. So just keep pouring water in, 3 litres would be good as it would give you 25% mix for winter.

Yes i did think, hence my reply.

If my post offends you, then you should realize the internet is full of different views from different people, your views apparently differ from mine, therefore we see thing's differently.

but honestly, struggling to fill a washer bottle and is out on the road driving, no wonder insurance is high and there is so many crashes.

That is patronising and unecessary.
