Well I gave it a bash.

I used 100ml of AG BS (purple) to about 600ml water but it was very thin and runny but still slick on the panel, and ok to use on a clean panel that just needs wiping.
I then tried 100ml BS to 150ml ish water and this was thicker, but still heavy. It’d dwell ok to do a panel or two at a time... but seemed quite wasteful on product.

The issue was having a foamer on and if you wanted to rinse it’d be lots of swapping lance to foamer.
On a hot day it’d be impossible to do without tens of lance/foamer swaps, or using a hose and PW together.

On a cool damp evening like to night it worked ok.

I think it’d work well with a shampoo that really foamed. I have some elite foam and bouncers foam so will try those on a small clean test area just to get a feel without risking swirling.


Also dragging around the PW more spraying odd panels was a chore as my hands got dirty and needed rinsing before using the mitt again.


All in the extra time saving was offset with some extra faff (cleaning/setting up foamer again, rinsing hands etc)


A quick foam/2BM/rinse 0ppm on a hot sunny day took me about 1hr.

My quick test tonight took about 1hr, so there isn’t really enough in it to make it useful given the extra faff steps.


Maybe with a dedicated shampoo pump foamer or QR guns and a perfect soap that dwells you could shave off some time.
But it seems in trying to avoid my 2BM faff and extra bucket filling/rinsing is just offset with other faff and rinsing other tools.


Time to look for other time saving methods

Hmmm I don’t think I could clean my F30 3er with winter salt and mud in 5 mins with ONR.

You literally get a 1mm thick layer of dried on mud on the lower parts of the car around here... then again in winter we have a river flowing 25 cumecs average about 30m from the garage so no water shortage issues.

I suppose if you live where it’s very dry then you don’t have salt and mud to contend with.

He did say that it wasn't intended to be used for a full on deep wash.
