I did email AutoFinesse asking about the absolute dilution ratio for their Avalanche foams. I never got a response. Not in their interest I suppose, if you use too much product they sell more.

Alfie Renadhy reveals four foam products that have good efficiency. The following are the notes I made while watching through the videos.

"Sams Active snow foam £16.99 for 5 litres use 150Ml-200ml per shot = 33 - 25 shots. Price per shot = £0.51 - £0.67 Not pH neutral. Recommended use for Winter washes 90%+ efficient
Sam's pH neutral 1 litre for £5.99 6.6 shots = £0.90 shot 60%-80% efficient
Autofinesse avalanche 1-2" 120-240ml per shot at lowest = 41 shots or 20 shots at 240ml. Price per shot £0.75 - £1.50 80 -90% effciient
Inspired automotive ('does not strip wax' claimed) 200-300 ml per shot = 25 - 66 shots at £25.50 delivered. Price per shot = £ 1.02 - £1.60 80-90% efficient"
I have watched quite a few of his videos. Most of it is rubbish using shampoo's as snow foams and he makes up the % for cleaning ability also. Some do show snow foam pre washes do indeed work though.

Yes, I agree, shampoo as foam is a waste of time. And the percentage efficiency is, of course, subjective to him, but the evidence is before your own eyes; you can make your own conclusions. Without expensive testing equipment it is difficult to know how else to judge a foam. I think he make a very good stab at it; in fact the best I have found.

His general conclusion that some foams are rubbish products and others not, remains valid.
