You're using WAY too much. That one can will last both my Bonnevilles and Kim'* Neon almost 2 years. With several applications on each car. Use a very light film on a damp rag for each application. This doesn't go on like wax. It'* supposed to go on much thinner.

You should have at least 9/10 of that can left after 2 or 3 coats.
That'* what Will had to say from my other post. I was obviously a noob to the stuff so hopefully this can help you out.

LG? i ahvent ever heard of it but i am right in guessing its called liquid glass? McGuires makes some really awesome wax and post wax treatment also, unless we are talking about the same stuff...

Yup... Liquid Glass. It runs ya about 20 bucks for a small can, and I can say IMO that it is the best car polish in the stores.

LG isn't a wax. It'* a polymer sealant that bonds to your finish. Closest thing ya can get to clearcoat w/o a paint job.

it is the easiest stuff in the world to use, takes about 10 to 15 minutes to put it on the whole car, then 5 to wipe it off, the shine is awesome. plus you can use it on your windows.

I apply it once every 3-6 months, bought a new can in Oregon..its half price there..its Excellent stuff
I have the pre cleaner too..but dove works just as good..
I find it goes on and spreads easy..so i dont need to use much, but i do the windows and tails at the same time..

If you put it on with a slightly damp SMALL washcloth, it spreads thinner. And that'* all you need. A thin coat, bake in the sun for 4 hours, then another thin coat. Second coat goes on MUCH thinner and easier, but the first coat is still far easier to apply and buff off than traditional wax. One can lasts me two cars for over a year.
