Solution %/Volume Question

Asked March 5, 2019, 11:48 PM EST

Hello and thank you for answering my question.
So there is a tank of fluid that is 16.5 % propylene glycol and 83.5% water.
The total volume of the mixture is: 4500 Liters. If I want to bump the propylene glycol % up to 40%, how many litres of pure propylene glycol 100%, do I need to add to achieve the 40% glycol 60% water solution ?
Thanks.
