    That's because you use all or high PG, right? Mine last me a really long time too.

    I don't use dark liquids with a lot of sweetners and very high PG and mine last forever.

    I can't believe some of the responses here, 60 ml in 3 days? I vape dual coils @ .5ohms and barely go through 30ml a week! lol

    That said my wife does use Boge carto tanks on a Provari, she does go through about 1 and a half F-16 carto tanks a day. All our juices are mixed by me, all the same base 18mg for her 10mg for me 15%/85% PG/VG. Very thick stuff and her cartos seem to last about 2-3 weeks, our flavors vary some sweet, some not so much it's really all over the place. But the cartos don't seen effected much at all they last quite a bit.

    I use very high PG (85%) and my juice is clear and not sweet. It's menthol with a shot of koolada in it and a couple of drops of peppermint (miniscule: 9 drops in a 60ml. bottle). My flavor percentage to the PG/VG mix is about 5%. Yet I cannot get more than a few days out of a carto in a tank. I use 2ohm SC cartomizers, 3.5mg. nic. I average between 8 and 12 ml. a day. The tanks are basic tanks...nothing really fancy. The most I've ever gotten out of a carto in a tank is about 10 days...and that was like a miracle. I generally figure on about 2 days as being about the most I can count on. Once in a blue moon I can eke out 3 days. The carto will continue to work and isn't clogged or really "burnt" tasting; but the flavor will change and get kinda..blah. "Off" tasting. I can't stand that so I change it out.

    So clear light juice with little sweetener isn't the magic bullet, I'm pretty sure.

    I don't know what to say. I've been filling cartos for 2 people for a few years and mine last twice as long as the ones that are tobacco, higher VG.

    Edit: I don't vape anywhere near 8-12 ml a day, probably closer to 2ml (I vape higher nic) and switch between several pvs. That may be why.

    My smok flanged ones last at least 2 weeks with filler. The nickel ones I can't tell you yet. I am at week 3 of my most heavily used semi dark sweet liquid. No signs of slowing. I has never flooded. But none of the filler-less ones have yet. I am nice about how many volts I use on them. Depending on there ohms obviously. But if it seems toasted when I hit it once. I back right down. Nothing worse then burned filler.

    well, I know my daughter and I both change heads or cartos at different times,,,,,,,we use the same brand, but what she feels tastes YUCK is far longer than how I feel it tastes YUCK,,,,,,

    maybe it's just another personal preference???? some taste buds are just more "picky" than others??

    Sir, we gave you the wrong carto.. You're not suppose to be able to drive across the country using less than 5 gallons of e-juice and still not have to fill up....

    Oh!! Whoops.. sorry. wrong conspiracy thread...

    I have cartos that have lasted a month.. same ones don't last the wife 2 weeks.. be glad!!
