    Evening all! I just bought some of the gtechniq citrus APC and was wondering if anyone knows what is a decent dilution ratio when using as a pre-cleaner.

    The bottle says use neat for heavy soiling and 1:100 for light soiling, but that's quite the difference in concentration!!

    I'll be applying with a pump sprayer for the first stage of the wash if that makes any difference to your answers!

    Hey, how did the W5 work out for you as a pre-wash through a pump spray, and did you settle on a successful dilution ratio? I’m considering moving over to this from my auto foam. As a pre wash, reading would suggest a dilution of between 1:5 and 1:10, but either ratio is going to be considerably more expensive than the auto foam and indeed VP citrus wash which I have also tried before.

    Yeah it works well! Much better than the foam at things like bug removal and that side of grime removal, but I still used foam after the APC anyway so can't give a true comparison of APC as a foam replacement.

    Generally settled for around a 1:4 or 5 ratio similar to the foam. Have used on the interior too at a higher dilution rate and that was great. Hope that helps!

    Great thanks very much, I may give it a try, like I say just the price a bit off putting at that dilution, thanks!
