Any car I've had has taken about 4 litres to fill to the brim so i wouldn't worry

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.

maybe so, but with this thread having over 300 views and only 13 reply's, 3 of which are mine, then im guessing ALOT of people were at least thinking what i said.

you say im patronising, i say im stating the obvious

unnecessary, maybe, but at some point someone would have said something, that,s the way it is.

If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all :P My mother always told me that... I rarely listen :P

arbgarry. A lot of thought must have went into such a constructive response to the question. Well done.

Hi David,

As mentioned, the screenwash container is about 4 litres. I usually put in a 2 litre bottle of concentrated screen wash and fill the rest up with water. You can also buy ready-mixed screen-wash which is slightly cheaper and means that you don't need to add water. Hope this helps!

Just brim it with water now and it should be good to go.Its not an exact science so I don't think it matters how much of either or you put in.You might use allot of it this time of year anyway and may need to put more in before you know it. :)
