I have driven through very heavy rains and actually turned the wipers off because the RainX did such a great job. Vision was improved without the wiper sloshing the water around. Mrchips probably had pretty good vision with the RainX.

Before you criticise someone, walk a mile in his shoes. That way if he gets angry, he'll be a mile away....and barefoot!

A mention and endorsement of RainX in the OP might have helped. I think many of us would just as soon avoid rain all together but sometimes can't be avoided. RainX does work. Home safe and sound and sorry to hear about the family. Thoughts are with you and if my memory is working - Congrats on daughters college admission! No harm - no foul. All the best.

Flagship1, no issues at all my friend. And I would have bet money I put rainx in my OP, but after going back and re-reading I see that I didn't. Hey, I tried to capture everything.....:-)

Well, no comment on choice of service, but I do thank you for your service.

Just to rub it in, we just got back from about a 600 mile inclusive round trip and I got 9.6 mpg going, and on the way back we hit a 1 hour traffic jam on Beltway 8, West side of Houston heading Southbound and it dropped to 9.0, with a 340 hp ISB. You must be holding your foot wrong.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Wayne, I won't comment on your service either, as judging by your avitar you picked the wrong one also.....LOL But I thank you for your service as well. All services served in are services served, and all are to be thanked.

What is your 340 in, that is some pretty good milage.

RainX works. I figured you might have been using it such that you could keep going.

Just finished 1048 mile trip down the Oregon coast. Windshield wipers worked great....still had two bottles of Rain X on board just in case. No toad, just bikes on the back rack. No breakdowns, no faulty parts, 9.8 MPG, and plenty of Tillamook cheese brought home.
