Have read very varied results for it from test to test. My tap water was actually slightly alkaline as well so certainly not neutral. I will retest it also and see what I get. I know neat its PH12.

As Brian mentions, every setup needs testing separately. You will need to follow the steps given under the heading "As a snowfoam" in the review

I’ve been thinking about the drying problem as the weather warms up. Could you do a few panels at a time rather than soak the whole car at once then risk it drying?

No reason why you couldn't richtea. Still want to make sure it gets 1-2 mins dwell time without drying out also.

Annoyingly both snow foam bottles I have even though they say they are 1 litre are slightly under. Can I still measure the impact ratio say if I start off with 900ml in the bottle?

You can. Just work out the ratio accordingly using 900ml instead of 1000ml in the bottle.
