So this may seem like a stupid question and I am not afraid to admit that my math skills are not the best. I bought a 32oz spray bottle from Chemical Guys and I was playing around the dilution levels with regular water and I think the dilution ratio according to the bottle is off par. I was wondering if anybody who might own one of these exact bottles can let me know if i am using the ratio chart wrong.

As you can see from the chart, I filled the water line to the 1:1 ratio, which should be 16oz of water correct? but when I pour the water back into a Pyrex measuring cup, the 1:1 ratio is really only 14 oz of water. I know i am probably being to anal but then there is really no point in paying extra for the dilution chart if ifs not accurate to begin with.

I also noticed that the bottle can actually hold a total of 34-36oz.

The dilution ratio is accurate if you only fill the bottle up to the point where it starts funnelling upwards, if that make sense. If you measure around 15cm up from the bottom of the bottle you'll know the point I mean, and the 1:1 marking is around 7.5cm. I guess they've done it that way because it becomes harder to measure dilution when the shape of the bottle becomes gradually narrower.
