I've just been driving my 90 round the alps for a couple of weeks
snowboarding and it was down to at least -18 at times. I topped my
washer bottle up with undiluted winter screenwash after using most of
the existing mix on the way down from Rotterdam. I reckon mine must
have been 75% screenwash. After that it didn't freeze. Obviously its
worth checking your nozzles are clear of snow/ice before you set off
even if its undiluted.
Just wish I had headlamp, mirror and side windows washers too. It was
only when I'd driven inside an unlit avalanche shield that I realised
how filthy my lights had got!
