I didn't quote anyone, i assumed it was obvious which people my post was referring to

And yes that measurement will give 4% PIR for a regular garden sprayer thingy, but the 10 minutes thing isn't good advice, BHAF works a lot faster and isn't designed to work over the course of ten minutes.

So if I leave for 10 minutes what's going to happen?

No mention of pw’s or lance through puts. And 80ml to 2 litres in a pump sprayer is bang on
For a true pedantic 4% it should be 80ml product and 1920ml of water. 80ml + 2 litres will 'only' give tou 3.85% PIR. Wont make any difference though.

It'll dry out, not the end of the world, but if you read the link i posted, you should only need to leave it for less than 5 minutes.

Yup - and i missed seeing that when i read it, 80ml is 4% of 2000, can't add 2000

Yeah the only draw back to using AF using pressure sprayer is it can dry out very quickly. I tend to mist some water using my PW if it dries out.

Love that the review is now encouraging more people to do the process and work out the correct dilutions to use auto-foam correctly Thanks for spreading the review about to help members out guys, it makes the reviews all worth while when I see this .

Good work fellas

My dilution works well for me, and my 1l bottle only has a small amount left in after foaming the whole car including wheels and arches and under the sills

I'll certainly check out the thread and see how different mixtures work out

Reckon I'll get a cheap sprayer from home base and get a 5ltr to give it a crack! Normally only use a cirrus pre-wash so you have just saved me 30 quid on a foam gun!

I've tried autofoam through a lance and through a pump sprayer, i prefer to use it through the lance for a couple of reasons.

It's quicker to apply.

You get a more positive application especially when windy.

It's easier to see where you have coverage.

It can dwell longer without worrying about it drying.

I use what I have mixed up in the pump to spray the door jambs etc.

I don't see any difference in cleaning ability.
