    Default Distilled water to VG

    Hello, I was wondering how much distilled water you add to your VG. I received my VG, 60mg Nic in VG, and a small bottle of PG. I want a higher concentration of VG than PG and was wondering what the VG DIYers do with there mixes.

    If there is more VG than PG in the mix and the VG is really thick I add 5-10% water to thin it a bit.

    If it is 5-10% can I just add it to the large bottle of VG that way it is already thinned when it is time to mix. I did an unflavored mix today and was pleased with the refreshing feel of it, although, I thought it tasted just a bit nutty, it must be the nic. Waiting for my flavors to arrive.

    Yes sure . It will make mixing easier . Try 5% first and see.

    I don't like to use H2O for Thinning VG. I think Pure PG as a Thinner makes a Better DIY.

    I thin my VG with 4 Parts Pure VG to 1 Part Pure PG.

    So, if I make my finial juice at 80% VG and 20% PG I may not need to thin the VG to start with?

    I thin my VG with PG and then Use it in Percentage as if it wasn't thinned.

    You see, it all depends on what you want the e-Liquid to do.

    For me, if I used your abour PG|VG ratio without thinning the VG first, it wouldn't "wick" well in a CE2 Cartomizer. And it would be Terrible in a Filler Type Carto.

    I think what you will find is that after about 70% Total VG in a mix, that you don't get much more vapor. But the e-Liquid will start to get Very Thick and not "wick" causing Burnt Dry Hits.

    You just have to Experiment a little and see what works well in your hardware and what tastes best for you.

    Remember to Keep Good Records.
