    Default Window washer tank and detergent

    Does someone know the capacity of the window washer reservoir on a 2014 Fortuner and what detergent can be added to clean oily windscreens without damaging the rubbers and pump--A friend of mine used normal dish washing liquid and it stuffed up his rubbers around the glass and the pump impeller .
    I do have a bottle of BUG OFF that is for windscreens but I want to make sure it does not eat at my seals.

    Cheers

    Been using Sunlight liquid forever, even before the Tuna. On the Tuna for 9 years and no issues with windscreen rubber or pump impeller.

    I store my knapsack sprayers with a water and sunlight dilution to prevent rubber seal hardening

    Been using Sunlight liquid since forever. But I like to use car polish on my windscreen. It makes water run off windscreen. At speed on highway, I don't need to switch on wipers. Sunlight will remove the wax. So decided to change to liquid 'wash n wax'

    The trick is to mix the sunlight and others with water before adding to the window washer reservoir.
