You mentioned 1:1 and 1:2 above. Not sure why? You aren't using 1:1 or 1:2.

If you use it more dilute but the same total volume, that means it'll take you longer to use up a bottle, which means it's more likely to go bad before you finish it.
And I think it's much easier to do the math if you use ml and L rather than oz. An 8x10 tray works well with 1 L of working solution. 100ml developer and 900ml of water gives you that.
