windscreen washer jets & wiper sync.

Thanks for the reply,, very informative and good to know I am not the only one to be annoyed by it.
Regards the spray, it might not be so bad if most of it hit the windscreen, but it doesn't, most goes over the car behind, well every time I used the washer I noticed cars behind putting their fog lights on,, gota have a joke,,,

When its really crappy and lots of mess coming off the road especially salt,, the washed doesn’t deliver enough to wash it off,, I have altered the angle and made it a little better, on medium to fair days mist is fine if only it went on the windscreen,, mine supply doesn’t last long and it take just over half a gallon.

Thanks for the concentration remark,, yes! it seems you do need to put a good concentration in,, I have now been told that the wash liquid must be special,, not normal as I am using,,, any comment there??? perhaps your bigger windscreen gets most of the mist,, mine doesn't,, what I do in a car with normal jets is to pulse the jet at the appropriate time into the wipers,, for medium to fair use,, and hand on the handle for loads of yuk situations.

I think that cars with a auto pulse system on a single jet would be better,, or even have both options,, the extra cost per car could be less than £1.00 in actual materials.

Have you fond any good method for doing the windscreen after a car wash,, I use fairy and a green pad????
