Martin I don't dilute to the point where streaking is an issue.
Hate to get that once in a lifetime shot ruined. I like consistency.
So with Xtol I do 1:3. D76 I did 1:2. Rodinal i did 1:100 or 1:75.
I tried higher dilutions than dilution B way back of HC-110 like Ansel was
supposed to of but got streaking.
All my results from that developer were from terrible to barely passable.

So i just dilute as much as i can safely. And i try not to hurt anybody.
