I can see there is alot of enthusiasm for using store bought washer fluid however you should be certain the water content is distilled or you will be loading your combustion chambers with alot of stuff you do not want.

Years ago I rebuilt an engine that used one the the simple vacuum draw through "water injection" systems. The heads, valves and exhaust looked like they were porcelain coated and it was flaking off in large sections. It was obvious they had been using tap water. I'd also worry about detergents and dyes.

If you are serious about this you can still buy 5 gallon cans of methanol from chemical supply houses and the distilled water can be had for $1.00 a gallon. Mix your own and know what you are putting in your engine.
