Concentration level Excel vs Metricide ?

Just bought some Metricide from Amazon which says 2.5%...
I use Excel until now and I overfill a one ml pipette twice for my
dose that I use.
How much Metricide would be about equal to that?

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...

Excel is 1.5% so 1ml of excel would equal 0.6ml metracide.

Just what I needed...so just over 1 ml of Metricide will be about equal to 2 ml of the Excel.

1.2ml met will equal 2ml excel, just get close though, being off a little isn't going to cause any issues.
