So you get rid of 1l it would fill 30 litres - 4% of tat would be 1.2 litres!
no buddy....fill your detergent bottle with water upto the 1l mark...set the detergent feed to max....point bottle into a bucket and press trigger...keep going until the bottle is empty then STOP>measure water in bucket and take 4% of that...thats how much BHAF you need in your bottle....

I have used this calculation and I use 660ml foam in a 1 litre bottle. Quite a lot but I only use about 300ml to cover my car

At that setting neat BHAF in the bottle would give you 330ml/10L = 3.3% you wouldnt be able to achieve a stronger dilution...

So.. I have done this again. This time cleaned a lot better.

I had to put 480ml in the litre bottle.

It cleaned most of the dirt of the car - some was left behind after the pressure rinse but given it was really dirty I can live with that!

only issue is that I used 75% of the litre bottle to wash one car - seems rather expensive?

Unless you've a bus I'd say that's a lot

I use about a third on my jeep grand cherokee and about a quarter on the mx5.

Bilt Humber Snow foam - diluation

I can get around a Caddy including wheels and arches with 250ml!

So with a 50/50 mix it’s still not expensive.
