When you do run out and have to buy some, they don't sell it by the quart. You buy a full gallon, and the car won't hold it all.
Is this so that I can always have a tiny amount left in a loose gallon container slopping around in my trunk/hatch? I'd rather not have that... so I usually just throw it away or dump it in the squeegee buckets near the gas pumps. Whichever option I choose, I always curse the engineer who fitted the car with a 103 ounce washer solvent tank.
Every car I've ever had as I can recall...which is a lot of cars...has always a reservoir that's short of a full gallon.
