About $20 or less for a gallon which makes 11 gallons. I can highly recommend!

If you get water that drips on the panels, wipe it dry, but if you're car is dirty, leaf blow the water dry, as you should NEVER wipe dirt.

Megs glass cleaner, the best by a long shot. I used to be a huge fan of IG, no more, the Megs stuff works so much better, smells better and is cheaper. Its almost like a QD for glass.
That is my story dead on, Megs glass cleaner is the best hands down for the value.

Use ONR in a bucket with a sponge, clean the windows, then wipe them streak free. DONE!
Works great, I very rarely have to go back over glass with ONR at QD strength and a MF towel after washing them with ONR.
Two mistakes that are common when cleaning glass:
1. Using something other than microfiber
2. Not getting the glass wet enough-you don't get it wet enough with the glass cleaner, you can't remove all the built up grime.
I test for Optimum, Clearkote, Meguiars

The trick to getting glass streak-free is to get all the fluid (water or cleaner) off the window before it has a chance to dry on its own. That is when streaking occurs.
Use a damp towel to "wash" the window then a dry towel to "buff" it dry. The key being to move quickly with the dry towel side to side staying on one plane until you feel it starting to grab the glass a bit then slowly move towards the end of the section you are trying to clean. You will get streaking if you move away from an area where the towel hasn't been given a chance to absorb everything on that section of glass. Just like if you were QDing the paint and fail to properly dry a panel you'd end up with streaks.
We use ww mf towels and watered down glass cleaner, Meg's or Ardex or any other alcohol based cleaner as they are nearly the same. I water ours down a bit more then recommended in the warmer months so that we have more working time. Knowing that alcohol is a drying agent it will cut down on your margin for error and can increase your streaking if you aren't quick enough.
