Renault do a screen wash down to minus 20c. Its looks awffy like whisky to me but tastes slightly different. Amber in colour. Great stuff I use it in my car and van and I get some really low temps up in Rannoch moor and Glencoe in the van.

Why in this day and age cant someone invent a heat exchanger in the pipeline. You could wrap the pipe around a hot water hose - not looked to see if this is possible on Soul.

Hi. My washer fluid from Halfords is working down to -10. Did you buy the already diluted? I used the full strength at around 50-50 mix, maybe slightly more antifreeze, it is difficult to tell when just topping up.

Yes, a bottle of neat that I had in the boot froze as well. I made this up as, sorry to admit, my washer bottle joined the frozen club after being subjected to the constant freezing onslaught. Just lasted a while longer than others before freezing, thought I had got away with it.
