    I have a very nice pressure washer that I intend to use to wash my Tundra; it has a low-pressure soap injector on it that can be used for soaping up items.

    Is there any reason to consider getting a "foam cannon" to use, in lieu of the soap injector? The soap injector does more "suds" than "foam". Thoughts? Experience?

    I have both, my soap injector can't come close to being compared to the foam cannon. The foam cannon will make it look like I sprayed shaving cream on the truck, it can be that thick if you want it to be. Buy one of the cheap foam cannons from Amazon for like $15.00 and be amazed. I'm not saying you can't live without one but there are pretty cool.

    The foam you will get depends on several factors....the PSI of the pressure washer you have, the flow (GPM) rate of the unit, the hardness of your water to name some. I've not used Citrus Wash and Gloss in a foam cannon, but I have used Chemical Guys Honeydew Snow Foam with excellent results. I have a SunJoe SPX3000 electric pressure washer (rated 2030psi and 1.76 GPM) and I swapped the standard (1.25mm) orifice out of the cannon for the smaller (1.1mm) one, and it does improve the thickness of the foam.
