I CONSIDERED taking it to the dealer to see if they would fill it under the maintenance agreement, but haven't had time yet.
avoid spraying when you have the headlights on otherwise it activates the headlight jets and wastes a ton of fluid (assuming you have the headlight jets)

when i forst got the car i would add fluid and it looked like the thing was full..because the fluid would reach the top of the tube. But i later found out that it just looked that way..i could keep adding way more fluid and it would continue taking it without overflowing..if you have been filling it yourself, maybe you havent beein filling it to it's full capacity.
