I use Xtol at 1:2 all the time. I mix and match Delta 400 in 120 and 35mm
into a single liter tank: two reels of 35mm, one of 120. That's 300 ml
of stock solution, diluted at 1:2 gives me 900ml of working solution,
which is just a little more than it takes to cover the reels.

I have 3 tanks, so this is a handy way to run 9 rolls of film at once
and use up a single liter of Xtol in one go.

I rarely use Xtol at 1:3, and even more rarely at 1:1.
