    When I mix I usually do a 3:1 ratio of PG to VG.

    that's interesting, I take it that you mean 3 drops PG, to 1 drop VG right? Haven't tried that combo yet. I'll have to check that out.

    I have been using 80% VG, 20% distilled water.

    Makes billows of vapor. Tastes like VG though, which is an issue for some.

    can you just add a few drops of vg to premixed eliquids to make better vapor?

    I don't see why not. Just make sure you mix it up well before you fill a cart with it.

    Also, be prepared for a change in the flavor.

    FWIR, a ratio of 80/20 or even 75/25 is a happy medium for good TH and decent vapour. When mixing, I personally start with a "base" liquid.

    TH is increased by either using high nic or adding PGA to your mix.

    Vapour can be increased by adding distilled H20, not necessarily "more" VG.

    There are so many variables, enough to go "wonky". I believe in the KISS principle.

    Base liquid
    I start by using high concentration nic juice and reduce it to a reasonable % of nicotine e.g 50mgs---->18 or 24mg. This is accomplished by:


    • starting mg and target mg


    • pg/vg ratio simple just put it 20 or 25% in the VG slot. The calculator will tell you how much PG needs to be added

    You now have your base liquid at whatever nicotine concentrtion you want. From there I flavour. The reduction in nicotine content is really insignificant, and you always have a base on hand and trying something new becomes relatively simple, you just flavour the base.

    ... and a drop in nicotine concentration, with a resultant loss of TH

    I made a batch of juicy fruit the other day and used 60% vg 40% pg. Good flavor and lots of vapor but not much of a throat hit.
