Sean,

I have used this on tyre's at 4:1 and I do not rate it if I am being honest! I have since got KC GreenStar at the same ratio and it is far better in my opinion.

Adam's Tyre & Rubber Cleaner is amazing but it is super expensive compared to GS.

I am new to Surfex hd and had been using it 9:1 on tyres and been unimpressed. It didn’t perform any better than megs apc at 4:1. Today I diluted it to 4:1 and it worked really well

Did you allow it to dwell? Been tests done on youtube and surfex pipped GS by quite a margin as the beat cleaning APC out there.

I use it at 1:4 so 100ml to 400ml in a 500ml sprayer. Spray it on and allow it to dwell 1-2 minutes before agitating with a stiff scrubbing brush. It will leave them close to spotless.

My pressure washer is out of action so no snow foam at the moment and I haven't got any citrus pre-wash stuff. Do you reckon I could use Surfex diluted 1:10 for lower half of car, door jambs and petrol cap etc?

I wouldn't recommend it as it would strip any protection you have on the car. What about a ph neutral pre wash? I use valet pro citrus prewash which i dilute to 1:6 in a spray bottle for heavily soiled cars

This would be fine. It won't degrade LSP significantly. Be sure to rinse it off very thoroughly though!
