Haven't had to add any washer fluid to my reservoir since I've picked up the car 2.5 month ago. BTW I have the CWP with the headlight washers. Just checked it this evening and I'm getting low finally. :thumb:

Driving my 3rd BMW and I've never added a drop. My dealership takes good care of me and fills it when I'm there for a summer/snow tire swap or getting the oil changed, etc.;)

After 13 months and 12,700 mi, I'm still over half full with the original clear fluid from the factory. We hardly had any nasty roads here in Pittsburgh this winter :thumb: :thumb:

Only twice since I got the car

The resivour is huge :yikes:

But, I think the dealer has topped it off when it was serviced a few times :dunno:

just in case nobody caught my post last week about clear washer fluid, the product to get is 20/10 concentrate- search the archives.

At least once a month, usually twice.

Four times a month, actually. The rear resevoir is separate and runs out at different times. :p

I had to add a 4 litre jug within 2 weeks of bringing it home. If it wasn't for the fact I looked under the hood (who wouldn't?) when I got it home to check every thing out, and "knew" the washer reservoir was full, I would have sworn the dealer gave me the car with it empty.

I find it goes through it like crazy when the headlights are on. Like driving through a rainstorm.

Oh well, Canadian Tire money goes for a torque wrench, Petro Points to washer fluid.

Almost never. I clean my windows at night with glass cleaner if needed. The car is also washed quite often. Thus, the only time I use the windshield washers is in the dead of winter when the salt spray is awful. I think I topped it off once in the year I've owned the car.

For six months of year (called winter here), I fill it up weekly.

For the other six months of the year (spring, summer, fall), I fill it up once.

I went through 20 liters of fluid from mid-December to April. And I didn't drink any of it. :yikes:
