I am not sure if this will apply nationally but certainly all the Tesco filling stations in our area now charge 20p to inflate your tyres and the same machine charges £1 to dispense upto 5L of screen wash. The majority of cars washer bottles wont hold 5L. Therefore if you take an empty container with you when you fill up you can dispense the full 5L (Fill your washer bottle first and the remainder into the empty container) This can be stored in you boot and used the next time you run out of screen wash and your windscreen is covered in salt spray!!
I dont think you will find 5l of screen wash cheaper than a pound anywhere.

Thanks for the info, will try this next time I fill up at Tesco, heat added.

I have been doing this for awhile nice post, its alot less hassle than buying it in the store and cheaper.

Now this deal is a bargain, thats for sure..voted hot.
How have people fared during this recent cold spell?
Has Tesco's screenwash frozen up in your washer bottle?

I currently use a concentrated screenwash from a motorists shop which works even in the coldest of weather, and does not freeze when it hits my windscreen

COLD, quite simply as this is PREMIXED, you can often buy CONCENTRATED screenwash which can make MUCH more for MUCH LESS.

Most shops have CONCENTRATE screenwash for FIVE (5) Litres for £1.99 - £3.99 (max), so for those people who like to save money. Keep a spare botte and mix appropriate = £££ Saved

Quite Simply this deal is ICE COLD!!

HOT deal - great price for convenience of premixed! :santa:

i think it's a disgrace that they now charge for air!tesco was the only place that didn't!

Crap quality screenwash as mentioned above and at the end of the day you get what you pay for - ok if you need some in an emergency but I'll always go for one you can mix yourself which you can alter the concentration of to reflect the weather conditions!

SAinsbury's is free to inflate tyres shall I post that as a bargain?

No it wasnt, Sainsburys is free.

Cold - 50 to 75 % at a guess will be water!

Most of Shell's are free to inflate. :thumbsup:

It may be premixed but it seems to have a low freezing point. Drove down to Paris and back last week with this washer fluid in the bottle. The Eurostar may have suffered with the cold but the screen wash did not freeze at all. Good deal in the cold weather. In the warm weather stick it in a separate bottle and dilute it 50/50 with water. A bargain either way!

Morrisons gives you a printed voucher with a code on. When you fill up. I think you need to spend a fiver on fuel....Which isn't hard..

I cannot find the concentrated stuff at that sort of price. The ASDA offer sold out instantly and everywhere else seems to do the diluted form in 5L and the concentrated in 1L for a couple of quid or more. Where should I get it from. I am about to go into temps of -10 to -15 so I think I will need concentrated.

Well it's supposed to have a low freezing point that's the whole point of a winter screenwash. And it wouldnt freeze when you're driving anyway the engine would keep it warm!

Agreed, it probably would not freeze in the washer bottle due to the heat generated by the engine. However, if the outside air temperature is cold enough then it may freeze as soon as it touches the windscreen.
I use a concentrated screenwash to prevent even that from happening.

I do believe that adding meths to a basic homemade screenwash solution of water and washing up liquid works stops it freezing up

Shell garages don't charge either

The guy that said about Morrisons giving out a free voucher after £5 of fuel -
Its actually £20 or £25 i cant remember, i work in a Morrisons petrol station, but they are stopping it completely site by site. We dont do it anymore, its 10p a minute for air. No more free vouchers - soon to be everywhere!

Oops , missed this .

I don't mind paying for air though if it means less muppets playing about with the compressors, they get so abused they end up faulty and/or inaccurate most of the time. Interesting reading:

10p a min is 15 seconds per wheel - who are they expecting, Stirling Moss! :whistling:

a bit of a strange method I admit but it works for me! I'm in the unfortunate position of disliking Vodka with a passion, yet every year i end up getting at least 3 bottles from suppliers through work, so fairy liquid, a couple of shots of vodka, topped up with water and .... hey presto....nice clear windscreen not matter what the conditions

It's only a problem when the local drunks start licking your windscreen :-)

Back to the deal - it's not a bad one, give the poster credit. They didn't have to share their tip

Someone once told me never to use washing up liquid as it damages paintwork. Meths might not be kind to paintwork either.

Washing up liquid only bungs up the holes after a while, soap ain't going to damage your paintwork!

You might be thinking of not putting anti-freeze in your spray washers and only in the radiator? That will seriously mess up your paintwork!

You can always use my other halfs system of NEVER filling the bloody washer bottle and save a fortune :x

Cool :o) Heat Added

True!

I believe the washing up liquid contains salt. Hate to think what meths will do but probably strip any polish from the paint.

I got the meths tip from the mse forums a fair while ago.
It seems that it is a lot less damaging to paintwork than many people seem to think. In fact I don't remember reading a single post saying that meths mixed with screenwash has damaged a cars paintwork.
However you do it at your own risk I spose.

Pretty sure most screen washes contain meths or something similar.

Methanol isnt good for you though, dont spill it on your hands it goes through the skin.

It will also make you blind if you drink it.



Beliveve it or not some people do!!

My Asda always has this in stock, also most good motoring stores (not Halfords), have it around this pricem Makro often have BOGOF, where in the UK are you?

This deal is SO COLD! - come on how hard is it to buy in "bulk" make it ready mix and pour it in yourself.
