Yes and No on the above answer.
DBC is 1:1
DBU is 1:1.5

Clears range from anywhere to 4:1 to 2:1

What products are you using? Are they PPG brand products or the value line OMNI paint?

Omni is PPG's value line. Less expensive, but doesn't have the color match of DBC or DBU. Not a big factor unles you're doing late model repairs.
I've found it to be pretty good, not real fond of the single stage.
Go to the link I posted, put your cursor over the Product Info tab, then Paint Lines, then OMNI. With this site, don't click until you get to OMNI the first two steps require just moving the mouse over the words.
