This is the guy that recommended using Purple Power Boat Vehicle Wash for car washes & Purple Power Degreaser to use on the wheels.

A $169 paint gun to replace a $5 garden hose nozzle to save 5 cents of water.

I understand the whole saving water idea but its called the water cycle. Once the water evaporates it doesn't disappear forever. Its not like your wasting 40 gallons. You will get it back.

"I love you all". Jeez. I save water by having high efficiency toilets, shower heads, washers, dishwashers, etc. I even turn the water off while brushing my teeth. I wash my daily driver once a month, maybe.

He mentioned having a separate bucket of water for wheels and tires. I just make those the last things I wash after the rest of the car.

Haha! I was thinking the same thing.

Although I haven't seen the newer GM trucks with rust yet (at least on the body panels). Now the frames are a different story. And I live in the rust belt.

Interesting, but I'm going to stick with the two bucket method.
