The first thing that you need to consider is the type of machine that you have selected, you need to learn the difference between gas and electrical power washers and select the right type, while gas power washers are more power than electric ones but electric ones are recommended when power washing a car, these are multi-functional and have a lot of options when it comes to psi and gpm settings, once you have selected the right type of machine you then have to think about the right psi.

Anywhere between 1200 to 1900 psi setting is recommended when washing a car, if you select anything less than 1200 then it won’t produce the right amount of pressure and anything above 1900 or 2000 psi might damage the paint of your car, this is the window you have and you should select anything in between, the recommended GPM for a car wash is no more than 1.4 or 1.6 which is significantly less than washing concrete or roof tops and you don’t need that much of water when power washing your car.
