I got mine in July of 06 and use mine ALLOT and have not ran out yet. I was just thinking about checking it the other day because I thought there was no way this thing is not close to empty with as much as I use it. Now that I said something it will run out very soon I just know it.

Canadian washer fluid jugs must be different than ones in the USA. Although I'm not sure of the exact size, mine was still very thirsty after 1 full jug.

Speaking of washer fluid, FUNNY STORY....

i bought my car here in San Diego and the dealers must have been filling it with water, because when I went cross-country, it all froze in Albuquerque. Then it took me about 2000 miles before I could get it all melted/flushed out and filled back up with the -20F stuff. And yes, it took two full jugs (I think our jugs are like 3L here in US) for me to even see the fluid line. So, to you here in the southwest, be careful when travelling to colder regions. I was quite the road hazard not having washer fluid capabilities in Colorado with salt/sand/snow on the road. I would have to get up real close on the ass of a semi so I could "wash" my windshield with his spray.

Yeah, these cars do have huuuge resevoirs for washer fluid. I wasn't too surprised though cause when I worked at Walmart changing oil a few years back, we used to dump a whole 4L jug of that stuff in the Cavaliers and Sunfires. My buddy and I were quite impressed that GM finally got rid of the need to carry a half empty jug around in yer trunk, lol. - Kinda like "why did it take car makers this long to think of that"
