    8 to 12 gallons per ton. At the spinner for a v box in the auger trough in a tailgate spreader. More is better...

    Forgot to add, it will lower your working temperature (pavement) of your salt below 15 degreesF but be careful when you get in the single digits.

    Pre wet. If you type it it autocorrects to pretty.
