The freezing point might be increasing, you loose the alcohol in it that keeps it from freezing after awhile.

I had to fill up mine in october for the first time ever. I poured a whole gallon in and still couldn't see the fluid. I was like "damn, how big of a tank is on these cars?" Does anybody know? lol

A savings of at least 8 pounds if you keep it empty

Squirt it. Use it or lose it. Isn't that a saying?

That tank is INSANE. My car is literally days away from being 2yrs old with 24k miles. Daily driver and i use it quite often. STILL has not run out and has never been topped off.. Good lord, it's a bottomless pit of fluid.

Bought my 2010 SS LS3 from the original owner in July, 2799 miles. Put 2000 miles on it this past summer never used the wipers. Burned plenty of rubber putting down 'stangs and one guy who thought his '70 Olds 442 was bad. Garaged for the winter and can't wait for warmer weather.

The original fluid preserves resale value.

I like my OEM washer fluid
Funny...as of this summer mine was 3 years old and I had never used it once. That's why when I added my APEX race scoop I just deleted it completely. Less weight.lol

I have the same fluid from Oct 2010, no dealer has touched it. Even my muffler bearing is original.

You are keeping it lubricated though correct? You can't leave those unattended.
