Do all snow foam liquids need watering down?

Just bought my first proper snow foam lance for my Karcher K4 and it's ace turning an Estoril Blue car in to fluffy white igloo

However, I filled the bottle with neat snow foam liquid, but some sites I just researched suggesting that you dilute it when filling the bottle in the lance.
What's the normal method, or does it depend on which snow foam you use?

Go by the directions on the foam label.

I use chemical guys honeydew snow soap and I dilute it as suggested on the label. Works great. Very good foaming action. I usually get about 4 washes out of a lance bottle of soap/water combo.

Thanks guys. Sounds like I may have just wasted about half a litre of snow foam then as I poured it in the lance neat to wash 2 cars
Still, it rained today and they still look clean even after a drive
