well according to AC my hydrometer is off by 4 so if I'm getting a reading of 1.022 it is actually 1.026 correct so why would I be off by 4

You misread my comment. Pull out just OVER 4gal. Put in your 4gal of salt water. Top off with straight distilled to bring it down closer to 1.024. At 1.026 you will be 2 points high.

Everyone I have talked to has said 1.024. Heck I hope I don't have the wrong target specific gravity. Anyone care to clarify please?
