Default Wind shield wiper fluid

Anyone have any ideas what could be wrong? I put windshield wiper fluid in my car until its full and then when I spray it on the glass, its all gone in one squirt. What could be wrong b/c I am pretty sure its not leaking through the fluid container.

Hole in the hose perhaps? That may only leak when you spray. Obviously you should fill it with plain water for testing until you figure it out.

park the car, fill it and then spray, after that check under the car to see where the leak is coming from.

+1 Also make sure that you are putting it into the right place. My EX GF put a whole bottle of washer fluid into her crankcase one day. I was speechless, and she was ((you guessed it....a blonde)). Now I am not saying that you are dumb, just people do weird things with cars. So just double check yourself.
