If you can get into Costco, they do really good stuff. About £5 for a gallon and its very strong! Holts extreme I think.

I haven't used that but I do always buy the concentrate rather than the premixed stuff as it is massively cheaper.

I use that too and very often they do an offer of buy one get one half price..I find it doesn't streak and dissolves the ice well. I also prefer pre mixed as much less of a faff to be honest.

If you live in a wet country it's worth popping the rainex additive. A small shot in every top up and the rain runs off! Won't stop it freezing so you'll need screen wash to!

I normally use readymixed premium from Halfords. However the Dooper I'd fill up every couple of months or so. The Clubby hasn't needed a top up yet, and I've had it over a year now :/
