The washer fluid used in the A4 isn't perfumed... it is, in
fact, isopropanol-based. I'm pretty sure that you can use
the "regular" stuff. Better still, just swing by your Audi
dealer, tell them "hey, this alcohol-based fluid bothers me
enough that I can't live with it... give me something else".
They'll put a different fluid in for you. Remember, this
stuff is free!
