Hi 2322,
Funny how you mentioned about the Z7, after I just tested it 059.gif
One cap from the Z7 bottle is about 10ml, so base on that, it is 20ml to 30ml per gallon. From my first test, it seems we need to use more product, as you mentioned.

The wash solution feels 'conditioned' and slick even at weak dilution but the suds were on its way out at the end of my wash. When the suds were weakening, the solution still feels conditioned.

I need another test to confirm my experience haha!

By the way, I think we are off topic tongue.gif .
Bro. vx55,
That was what I ask when posted earlier.
The Suds weaken with time. To me solution weakens slightly too. On Car body, less difference, but if use to wash the rims, feels like it is not washing properly or what I mean don't feel or look clean as when solution is new.

Bro.

You should try some Optimum Car Wash.
The suds is a good yardstick to measure the strength of a car wash shampoo but not a definite one.

My experience with OCWash is that even while washing the car in the evening, the suds are still there at the end of the wash in the bucket. Never had this experience with the rest of OTC products.
Fast forward to the next day, you still see suds outside my house.
Muahahaha

This is no joke. I ask my VR4 club members what they use to wash their cars, and this is one of the answers...... smile_shock.gif
They never detail their cars also, all mostly modification...... ph34r.gif
