dont recall off hand, but as stated, the dilution rate is poor compared to others so will be higher than most.

Sorry, I did give it a good shake.
It comes out quite runny. It doesn't foam up very strongly.

Was it a garden type pressure sprayer ? If so, it doesn't foam up through it, I find I get some small bubbles, but does clean well.

Neighbour uses it through his pressure washer and does a great job for him
