Film Photography: Kodak Xtol Developer 1+1 Dilution

Happy 2012, everyone. One of my informal resolutions for 2012 is to spend/buy less. In that spirit, I've started diluting my Xtol developer with one part water instead of using the stock solution. I've noticed a little less contrast, but I could probablyneed to develop for another 15 seconds rather than the recommended time. These are all on Kodak Tri-X 400 in my Hasselblad camera. I have some Fuji Neopan Acros 100 loaded in my 4x5 film holders, so I'll see how the Xtol 1+1 works with that next time.
