why don' you mark the outside of the cartridge with a felt tip pen.
Divide it into 5ths or 6ths for the amount you load.  I don't think 
the mix ratio is real important as long as it is close.  Lily has 
experienced no problems with the mix at 5 parts H to 1 part R and 
there appears to be VERY LITTLE difference in her response both to 
basal rate and bolus.
