Wow. This thing stinks. The opening leads directly to a right angle so you need to add slowly or it splashes everywhere and there really isnt room for an adequate funnel... who wants to carry around a funnel anyway. Maybe I'm just not patient enough. Then, there is no warning when its nearing full. It just shoots out. You can hear it if it's quiet enough, but it still doesn't leave any time for reacting.

Interesting... maybe I just found the use for gas funnel in Civic spare tire kit (intended for emergency refill of Civic capless tank, but which isn't needed for the Insight's capped system).

The manual offers the (not) 'very helpful' suggestion to "Pour the washer fluid carefully. Do not overflow the reservoir" - ha!

I had to buy like 2 funnels before I got one that fit. Also had trouble telling that it's full and was too late. Will have to fill it slowly in the future and watch the plastic tube.

I've never had a problem filling mine. How fast are you dumping washer fluid?

I just pour it into a funnel with a wide opening at the top. My mistake was rushing to empty the washer fluid jug since it only had a little left. By the time I saw the fluid rising to the top, my funnel was still emptying the fluid, and removing it would had done nothing. One of my daily face palm moments. :plain:

I just did this this afternoon. It was harrowing. You can't see hardly any of the reservoir.

I'm actually more annoyed that I got no warning on the DII when the reservoir was nearing empty. With all the tech on this car, they couldn't add something that my 2003 VW Passat had? Wiper fluid is critical in snowy weather.
