    if its for non commercial use then id recommend the loncin from jetmac , if your gonna venture in to powerwashing commercially then you want a minium of 15 lpm

    Im not sure about cars but a 7hp seems a tad powerfull for a car. Would you be better off with a Karcher?

    the pressure on the loncin is adjustable so you have high or low ,
