Quickest way is either to pull the pump out of the back of the tank (remove arch liner and reach back) to let the fluid drain or use a syphon pump.

Running the motor for too long will burn it out.

I tried a Tesco Bio screenwash before that was the same, horrible white residue where it dried on the glass and paintwork.

I use Carplan all seasons wash now and it's far better.

Rain x does a great job.

Im using prestone at the moment (was on offer at halfords) and it seems to be doing a good job.

Or leave a hose running fresh water into it for a couple of minutes, Save faffing about getting mouthfuls of washer fluid ;)

I'm in the same boat with the rubbish Tesco Screen Wash,

I could spend 2-3 hours cleaning car, then first time i use the wipers there will be horrible streaks left on bonnet,

Just got back from Tesco (Leeds) and they have Prestone 4L half price (£3),

Going to drain my washer fluid with a generous burst every time I get in, then give the Prestone stuff a go.

I have emptied my bottle in less than a week. Just so I could see the road. It would wipe clear then dry and leave a haze. All gone now thank god
