    Default Headlight washers drinking my screen wash!

    Since getting my xp2 I'm forever filling the screen wash! I know it's down to using them more because of the salt on the roads but just wondering where people buy their Winter screenwash from? Normally use halfords ready mix but must be cheaper to buy the undiluted tuff. So suggestions on where and what to buy is Welcome, thanks

    And the reason why the washer bottle goes green inside and the filter blocks up.

    i use the halfords concentrated stuff, quite good in minus figures i think. I have the headlight washers too, and i use them when needed, fill up every two weeks-ish. Oh and i use de-ionised water from work to top it up.
