How much windshield fluid does a car hold?

How much windshield washer fluid does my car hold? I’m about to refill my windshield fluid for the first time and I don’t want to add too much.

Answer
We’ve all been there! Refilling a car’s fluids for the first time, whether it’s oil or windshield fluid, is a little nerve-wracking!
While it does vary depending on your car, generally, the tank can usually accommodate three-quarters to a gallon of windshield washer fluid or two and a half to four liters of fluid.
A good way to know how much your car can take is by looking at the reservoir. The fluid reservoir is often clear at the top with a line indicating the correct amount, allowing you to see where to stop filling.
Beyond fluids, another way to keep your car running at its best is a consistent maintenance schedule. During tune-ups or oil changes, your fluids typically get checked, meaning you won’t ever have to worry about overfilling or running out!
