Thought I would share the photo with you all and it's on their Facebook page as well. Guess I can say finally got some recognition here in Texas!

    Washing your windshield with meth??? That reminds me of the time I visited my mother-in-law in the hospital. It was during one of our wonderful ice storms and my windshield had a solid coating of ice on it. What to do? I had a bottle of Seagrams 7 that someone had given me. I don’t care for that stuff so I used it to thaw the windshield and I wiped it down with paper towels. I realized at the hospital that I reeked of whisky! I can imagine what my mother-in-law was thinking of me. Bert

    windshield washer solvent is 20% - 35% methanol depending upon what part of the country you live in. If you live in a cold climate you get 30% or 35%.

    I have seen some washer fluid as high as 40% percent and besides being red there really is no difference! Plus it conceals the system better than a big black box that says snow or what ever system you decide on

    Somebody is going to freak when you clean your windows with boost juice and think you just sprayed coolant all over the car.

    I was contemplating meth injection using ww fluid. 30% solution is available locally. It's not as good as a 50/50 mix, but at $2/gal at Walmart, it's cheap and widely available if I take a road trip in the car.

    Did you punch a hole in the ww tank for the new line or add a splitter to the existing ww fluid line?

    I had a additional hole made at the bottom so the low washer fluid indicator still works and this having to avoid the led for low fluid.
