Nick_mcuk has tried it through a lance. This was his comment in an Autogloss Rinse thread I started last year. Not sure how he got on, or even bothered with a second test though

I have been using it for years in the traditional method as might have said previously in this thread.

So the results shocked me first off it foamed up quite well and the entire car went white! Left it to dwell for a couple of minutes then literally just pressure washed it off....it left a lovely shiny surface with beading and sheeting not quite the same as the traditional method but interesting still the same...will try again next week and use less but first tests show it does work!

I apply Autogloss rinse through one of these:

After every wash, let it dwell and then dry off.
Seems to leave a nice glossy finish and some protection, rain water beads nicely just not tight beads like you would get with a wax.

This is the only protection the car gets, no polish or wax is applied.

Works for me, quick, easy and cheap.

I was sold on this stuff after watching the awesome Autoglym video of it repelling water. However it doesn't perform like that on my cars. I'm sure it works better on paint without the level of LSP that most of us on here like. It does seem to leave a level of Gloss. You can't complain about the value for money 1:100 at maximum dilution 5l is going to last for ever.

1:100 is what Autoglym recommend, but I use it a lot stronger then that and it works brilliantly. In a 500ml bottle, try 50ml of product and fill the rest with water and see how that works, if not then add more until you're happy. If it's too strong it'll end up leaving stains on the paint, they will come off easy with a wipe of qd though

I will try it a bit stronger to see what difference it makes. Not sure when it's gone I would buy more.

I put a small amount in a two gallon bucket after washing car and tip over.
The water sheets off fantastically, leaving me with hardly any drying to do

I've never thought of using it that way. I suppose the water would sheet much better by poring water rather then using a jet was. I might have to try it

I put 100ml in 1l of water and washed as normal before spraying the entire car with the mix. It cased the remaining rinse water to chump and run off the sides before a rinsed it again. Still needed to dry the car. Better performance with stronger mix.
