    I need to check and be sure of the correct way to do something in the calculator.
    Lets' say I have 30ml of 70/30 8mg of diy juice, using the same percentages of flavorings, I want to make 20ml of 4mg nic to add to the 30ml of 8mg nic juice so I will come out with 50ml of 6mg juice. I hope I've explained what I'm wanting to accomplish clear enough. Thanks.

    Equal amounts of 8mg and 4mg will give you a finished product at 6mg.

    You'll need to mix the 20ml at 3mg/ml in order for the result to come out at 6mg/ml when mixed with the 30ml, 8mg/ml liquid.

    Tip: you can use Tools->Nic Combine on the menu to experiment with combining different strength liquids.

    Is there a web-only version of this calculator? I use Linux and nothing is compatible with that. . .

    So based on the attached, I would get:

    30ml 18mg with 3 flavors at a 70PV/30VG ratio. Why is the amount of VG higher than the PG is I am added 70% of PG -vs- only 30% of VG?

    For reference, I am working with an unflavored nic base @ 36mg, bottle of PG, bottle of VG, and Capella flavors.

    Are you taking the flavoring into account. The calculator considers flavoring as pg b/c most are.

    Yes Scottinboca has the correct answer, you're adding 9ml of pg in the form of Cappella's juice.

    One question though, is your Nic base really a 70/30 PG/VG mix?

    No it's not. I have a 500ml bottle of each PG and VG..but like that ratio. Is that not how to "split" it up?

    Yep, I normally buy a couple of 120ml bottles of each, I pre-mix them and store, my mix is 30/70 PG/VG, then enter the figures just way you did.

    The top section on the calculator is what you are using and the bottom section is the results of your input. In other words The PG/VG ratio in the top section is what you are using and the PG/VG ratio in the bottom section is for your target ratio.

    The calculator is right. Your base is 70/30, which is 50% of the total juice. All you need is the other 4.5ml or 15% of plain VG so the total % ratio of mixed juice will be 70/30.

    Mauzey...I hope so @ 240ml LOL.

    How does one know what PG/VG the flavor is? As all I see on Capella's site is "Ingredients
    Propylene Glycol(Used as a carrier to dissolve flavor ingredients)" So how do you know it's 9ml?

    pg is the solvent that the flavor or solute is mixed into. Don't worry, your not building a rocketship. LOL

    Most flavors are in a (PG) propylene glycol base but a few are in a (VG) vegetable glycerin or alcohol base. It will be one of the three and not a ratio of two.

    So the calc has already added an "average" of 9ml based on...10% of flavor I am using and/or amount of flavors?

    I was just ballparking the the 3 Cappela's flavors as equaling 9ml of PG, as they are flavors suspended in PG.

    lefthooked, you're making a bigger deal out of it than it really is. Don't worry bout it, so did I at first. I hadn't a clue as to what made sense at first with these calculators. It finally hit me one day.

    The top part is referring to your nicotine mix that you have. Let's say you bought it in a PG only base. Forget about the fact that you bought 500ml's of it. That's not part of the equation. You enter in the top that you have 100% PG, and the mg part to the right is the concentrate of nic. Let's say you bought 48mg/ml, you put in 48.

    Under that, is the target nic strength. You want it to be 24mg/ml? You put in 24. Under that, is the amount of juice you want to make. You want 10ml's? put in 10. Then comes the flavor. Let's just say you want a total of 10% flavor. If you only use one flavor, you put in 10. If you use two, you put in 5 and 5, or 6 and 4, or 7 and 3. Get the picture? All the different flavors must equal 10, and you put in the percentages for each separately.

    Then comes the bottom. All the way to the left it says PG and VG. This is what tripped me up, as I ignored it while trying to figure it out. If you want your mix to be a 70/30 PG mix, then PG you put 70 and VG you put 30. Then you hit calculate. Done. It will give you the figures for everything that goes into the mix.
