The recommended quantity is 60 to 100ml, i have seen people use 20ml and leave it a little longer to dwell with great results.
At 60ml its very cost effective at its price point with around 83 ltr from a 5000ml bottle. At 100ml per lance thats 50 x 1ltr bottles of foam for around £27.

You clearly foamed the entire car. Why is only half of it clean?

If you only jetwashed half of the boot, then that surely says more about the Jetwash than the foam? Did I miss something? It is a hypnotically thick foam though.
It could be that the car was pressure rinsed prior to the foam being applied? That is how I tend to gauge cleaning performance.

Reminds me of the famed AB Magifoam which many people have mixed reviews about.. it doesn’t matter about the thick foam, all rides on cleaning ability at an economical dose per use.. think I’ll stick to my BH autofoam via pump sprayer..

When ive used 8 below, ive used 100ml and its as thick as AG Polar blast (and hangs around on the drive as long!). I think I may cut back on the ratio a bit.

From what I have seen in this instance it does have some cleaning ability to go with the foam also.

IV also got the 7 below and this produces thinner foam and is more lap safe and just as cheap and effective for my car's

Try 60ml in the lance or open the lance to full to thin it out, you don't need much to get a powerful coat of foam

Looks an interesting and effective foam - certainly got the thick shaving foam effect from that photo
