One cup of sugar or two?

I have been doing diy co2 for quite some time using 2 cups of sugar when I ran across an article stating 1 cup of sugar is better, since there is really no need for the extra cup. Does anyone know if this is true? I tried just using 1 cup of sugar the last mixture and it seems to produce just as long, but I am unsure of the consistency of the mixture over time. Thanks.

how big of a jug of water are you using? the larger the jug the more sugar you can use. The yeast will have enough time to use up the sugar before the alcohol content kills them. In a smaller bottle use 1 cup because of the less water volume the alcohol content will kill the yeast off before it can use up the 2cups
