Default Yeast starter? Not your average question - (pitching rate)

I know a yeast started has several benifits and to start one is not my question . I have read some stuff on starting yeast and how to properly pitch amounts and it seems alot of talk is about amount. Well I have a 1 litter flask and people are saying you should do a 2 litter to really pitch correctly do you agree or is a 1 litter fine? Let's asume the og is 1.060 finally how do you. Count yeast if you wash them from other brews

Default says you need a 2.5 liter starter for a 5 gallon batch at 1.060. Check out the calculator I linked.
