3:1 is a good ratio and it is thinner because of the solvent... once that evaporates it will leave a nice coating of quality oil on and within the chain so after you wipe off the excess you should be good for a good while unless you encounter some really wet weather.

Re-lubing is dependent on mileage and the conditions you ride in so this is different for everyone.
