A newbe to winter driving asks...
While drivng in cold enough temps the light roadspray/mist in the air will freeze into a thin white sheet on the windshield. Using the windshield washer will remove it, but the the fluid in the washer tubes freezes up. That means either stop and clean ithe windshield or get behind a truck so the heavier spray gets on my windshield then run the wipers.
Now to the point, the saftey dept. says add alchohol to the washer fluid. No not the good stuff just isoproprul.
What about chemical reactions?
Does this work? Or was someone pulling my leg?
Add at what ratio?
Yes, I know low temp washer fluid is available, but if the ratio is low enough then the alchohol is cheaper since I can get free washer fluid from the shop (the kind that freezes).
Thanks for any help,
BTW ... Yes, I do read/search the posts on poor driving conditions and will likely be the slower truck in the granny lane during poor conditions.
