    Default Premium Washer Fluid

    What do you use? I've been really underwhelmed with Rain-X. I'd like something premium that I could dilute with the bargain basement stuff from Super Store to make a reasonable quality fluid at a decent price.
    $4.50/gal can suck my taint! I use way too much to tolerate paying that.

    Can you still buy 20/10 additive anywhere? I recall that stuff was amazing, but that was decades ago...

    I've always bought from Costco, $10.99 for 4 jugs. Recently picked up 6 cases of 4 rainx at Wally mart for $8.88/case.

    Which brand does Costco carry? Walmart is that Tech-2000 one, isn't it?

    I thought everyone hates RainX because it fucks up washer pumps?

    Really?, I should look into this before I use it.

    I find it all the same. If you have good wipers and washer sprayers. They all fog up a frozen windshield in the mornings, I find even road spray cleans off a dirty windshield so anything liquid and wet works fine.

    Bump for the frigid weather.

    How is your fluid performing below -20C?
    I'm using the Costco one and it's slightly better than the cheapest crap available.
