best windshield washer fluid/additive

I see offerings from 1Z, Wurth, and P21S. I have tried the 303 stuff and it was not bad but I want better if its avalable.
has anyone tried any of these?

Re: best windshield washer fluid/additive

I found that P21S left a white spotted look on areas outside the swept area of the wipers. Since then I went back to the ole blue stuff but could use water with Aquapel treatment.

Re: best windshield washer fluid/additive

I use the P21s additive!

I think it works well but it does leave the residue where the wipers don't reach if you add a bit too much. I tend to use too much so I get the residue but I like the strong cleaning power that removes the road grease. Infact it's so good that I ordered 5 bottles in my last AG order (it really is the best I've ever used!).

I don't really mind the residue as it can be cleaned with some DP Krystal Vison when I get home or it can just sit till I next wash the car and be removed with normal water.

I haven't tried the Wurth or 1Z but they're probablly quite similar.

I'd also like to know who Germany's "famous auto maker" that requested P21s to manufacture a good quality windshield washer additive was- Google search and no luck!

Re: best windshield washer fluid/additive

Sorry, don't mean to steal this thread. Has anyone used the Wurth Screen Wash Additive? If purchased, I would like to use it for winterizing my windshield washer reservoir but have no idea as to the dilution ratios. Product descriptions and reviews (Google, Yahoo and Bing) are vague or almost non-existent. Also looking at similar de-icing/anti-frost products from Einszett and Glass Science.

Re: best windshield washer fluid/additive

I use ONR & IPA combined.
No snow or freezing temps here (Australia) but for you guys in the cold I imagine the IPA would work as an anti-freeze too.
Not sure how much it would take though?

Re: best windshield washer fluid/additive

Check out the newest addition to the Pinnacle line - Pinnacle GlassWork Windshield Washer Booster

Driving with a windshield thatís constantly dirty is like driving with bald tires; itís a safety hazard. Since itís impossible to get out of your vehicle during rush hour traffic or while on the freeway to remove bugs, grease, and grime off the windshield, we developed this product to do all the work for you. Simply add the proper amount to your windshield washer reservoir (most vehicles have a reservoir that holds 1 gallon) and youíll be set for months! One 16 ounce bottle of Pinnacle GlassWork Windshield Washer Booster treats 16 gallons of windshield washer fluid. Whatís more, the bottle has a built-in measuring cup to ensure the correct amount is used every time.

This will be on an order in the near future
