Fantastic soap.
I am always skeptical when a company says you only need one ounce per 4 gallons, but this is quite accurate. At one ounce per gallon it does a great job stripping waxes and sealants. My car is coated with Opti Guard so this soap works extremely well to clean my vehicle and leave the coating bare. Great stuff! Buy it rather than using a dish detergent to strip tThe surface
ProsGreat value. A little goes such a long way. And it smells like Mt.Dew.
ConsAbsolutely none.

Leaves behind film
I bought to use on my daily driver as it lives outside and gets covered in sap and bird droppings. It seemed to clean very well until i noticed under some parking lot lights that there was a film all over the car. Which you can't just wipe off, it just smears. Had to rehash car with different soap. Won't use it again.
ProsTakes sap and bird droppings off paint well
ConsLeaves behind film

My goto before polishing
I use this mixed with Dawn to strip LSPs before claying and polishing any car. Works awesome. I just bought my second bottle and will continue to use it.

Not my cup of tea
This shampoo produces lots of suds and cleans quiet well. The downside is that it leaves behind a hard-to-remove film that can kill the beading of some LSPs. IMO the capacity of this shampoo to strip old LSPs is greatly over sold. If you want a shampoo that cleans well and doesn't leave residue behind look elsewhere.

Great cleansing Shampoo
I love using this in a strong ratio to strip all wax and sealants from my cars when I get ready to clay and resell for the year. Chemical guys make fantastic products and this one is no exception. Smells great and works even better!!

Great stuff
I used CG's CW&G for the 1st time today before sealing my car with WGDGPS 3.0. I was very impressed with the long lasting suds and how little you have to use to get all those suds. It is also very slippery so its easy to use. The car looked just waxed even before I sealed it. Thats how good this shampoo is. As mentioned elsewhere you have to shake it up good before use.
