I assume you must go to the main dealer for washer fluid as well... dont want to void the warranty :-)

Morrisons screenwash is not an MB recommend item. If they do a test at the dealer on this, your warranty is not worth anything and you will be flagged as a problem customer.

Just for your own info obviously.

MB screenwash is about a fiver a bottle and will dilute down to a full fill of your reservoir in moderate weather.

Why scrimp a couple of quid on a car that costs thousands ????

Madness ..........

Im afraid Im not a believer of marketing...... just because it has a MB star on it doesnt mean its made by MB. I have used Morrision's screenwash for a few years now and I find it very good. I buy 2.5 lts at a time & get two fills with it diluted, at this concentration it hasn't frozen up on me and it does what it says on the bottle.Im in Morrisons at least once a week so its convenient also, my dealer is 45 minutes away... so for something as non important as screen wash I wouldn't go out my way for it.

Good god this man is an anarchist, no good will come from not using Mercedes approved expensive screen wash.

The only thing I would say is don't mix different brands of screen wash. Doing so often results in a smelly sludge building up in the wash bottle.

Oh and cheaper brands may contain salts that eventually corrode the nozzles.
