It'd would be alot easier if you knew how many litres 10ml treated Also is this US or UK gallons?
Basically 1 ml should treat 1.8 gallons so just over 1 ml should treat your 2.16 gallons.... I think?

For future reference you can always fall back on the Treament dose calculator available on the main site:

Sounds like you should use about 1.5 ml unless you are a fanatic for that last decimal point. In that case it would be very close to 1.4ml.

(10/18)x2.16 = 1.2

Use 1.2 ml
