    Okay, I messed up when I did my last order for my ejuice.
    I usually get 120ml premix 100% pg and @36mg nic to cut down to 18mg nic and 70/30 pg/vg.

    I divide it down to 30ml bottles and that recipe looks like this:
    Base PG Nic % 36mg
    Target PG Nic % 18mg
    Amount to be made for recipe 30ml
    VG 30%
    Flavorings 20%

    The calculations for that come out like this:
    PG with nicotine 15ml Flavored Pre-mixed
    VG 9ml
    Flavorings 6ml

    This time I got 100% pg @18mg nic, but I want to change it to be the 70/30 pg/vg but keep the 18mg nic.

    What I want to do now is see if I can fix it. What would I need to order and how do I mix it in order to do that?

    If you want to add VG to your 18mg PG without lowering the 18mg, then the simple answer is to use 18mg VG.

    Yes, but how much in order to get the 70/30 balance? I have 120ml of 100% pg @18mg nic. So how much 18mg nic vg do I need to make it 70/30? I'm not the greatest at math!

    Well, I can only go off your OP where you had 20% flavoring added in to the whole mix....
    120ml of 18mg PG
    48 ml of flavoring (20% of total and assumed to be PG)
    72 ml of 18mg VG
    =70/30 PG/VG at 18mg/ml at 20% total flavoring

    lots of ways to get around this but the best and safest approach for the non-mathematician. Pick up some 54mg PG Nic and mix equal amounts with your 18mg. This will give you 36mg PG Nic base and you won't have to do any more math.

    Hoosier, in the OP her target is 18mg so she will need a nic base higher than 18mg if flavoring is used.

    Yep, I gave her a formula to follow that will get her to 14mg and keep the PG/VG ratios that seemed to be the primary concern. Figured 14.4mg/ml was close enough so it kept within the usually available mg's. Didn't even think about the OP getting some 24mg VG so that the formula would result in 16.2mg/ml which is even closer.

    Of course, I'm not really sure why most folks fret over the PG/VG final ratio so much, but it seems to be common enough that I think folks just like all the extra math involved. People approach this in ways alien to my head. (The constant of 20% flavoring is another example because I cannot imagine vaping 240ml of the exact same juice.)

    Why not? I smoked the exact same cigarettes for 30 years! And besides I LIKE my mix!

    I cannot eat the same lunch everyday, nor the same dinner. I generally carry 6 different juices on me at all times. The concept of one and only one is alien to my brain.

    I used to work with a guy who ate the same lunch every single day. He was very upset one day when his Mott's Apple Sauce had cinnamon in it because he only wanted the non-cinnamon version. I see it, but cannot comprehend it.

    I can see you like your mix, I just cannot comprehend it.

    This I understand.

    Sounds to me like you worked with my father!!! :)

    I do have other flavors that I vape once in a while but I still like this one the best.

    if i had not run out of my daily flavoring, i would mix up a big bottle of my daily liquid as well... i change it up all the time but i end up going back to my daily vape.(before i ran out)

    i mixed up some Capellas Vanilla Custard,Capellas's Peanut Butter,TPA double Chocolate,FW Caramel,TPA Marshmallow,EM

    i mixed 5ml's first and it was very tasty...i mixed up 44ml of it next as that is how much vanilla custard i had left.

    not sure what to call it but i have been vaping it for the last 3 days and i must say it is pretty tasty and only gets better each day..

    All it is, is MaxxBlend Menthol with a touch of Honey! I LIKE the tobacco taste! Didn't quit smoking because of taste, I quit because of $$$$$. The problem with the order is that I usually get the 36mg @ 100% pg and cut it down to 18mg @ 70/30 pg/vg. Saves a little money! This time when I ordered, I was not paying attention and ordered 18mg of 100% pg. So I have now done another order to fix it!
