    You can google easily what does the term VG and PG means. Basically, VG gives you more smoke while PG gives you more throat hit. For starter, usually is 20% VG and 80% PG, short form for 20/80. A high VG also means the eLiquid is thicker. Sometimes, it cannot flow into the dual coil tank because the hole is too small. So far, 20/80 seems to be the recommended combination for starters. I think the % nicotine in the eLiquid is more important. 18ml Nicotine can give me a relatively good throat hit. :)

    Well it all depends on your preference. I can tell you info regarding both but you'll still need to try both and decide what you like.
    PG: provides more "throat hit" and feeling of smoking with less vapor production.
    VG: provides more flavor and vapor production with less of the "throat hit" feeling.
    Also some things like vivi nova clearomizers and tanks wick blends that are 50/50 or more in pg better. I'm not a dripper so I feel I can't offer any info in that area. I do hope this helps and welcome to the vaping community. :)

    You'll need to try out different ratios to find out what works for you. I've found that 50/50 works for me. I put menthol in a lot of my liquids so that helps a bit on the throat hit. I have had zero issues running 50/50 in cartos or Vivi Novas. Nicotine does make a big difference in the throat hit as well.

    Guys, quit calling it smoke. There's no smoke when vaping. You are vaping and exhale vapor.

    Usually I get 70pg/30vg so I can get more flavor, but at places that offer extra shots, I get 50/50. I notice the increase in vapor in 50/50.

    PG can also provide more flavor along with throat hit.

    VG is thicker. PG is thinner. PG will provide greater taste. VG will produce more vapor.

    Some vape 100%PG. I'm one of those, although I sometimes vape 80pg/20vg or 70/30. You will find various mixes from different suppliers. It's all about your preference and the supplier's preference.

    A mix is probably where you will find your preference. Try several, starting with 70pg/30vg and see where you end up. The difference will be where you find taste and vapor that suits you. It's a lot like trying various brands of cigarettes to find out what you prefer.

    Well, I like the throat hit experience, but what I like the most is to have the flavor and good vapor! So, Thank you all for your responses, I'll look for the perfect mix for me.

    i think everyone needs to find his own ratio
    PG caries the flavour better, but without VG there is not enough vapor for me
    PG/VG in ratio 70/30 works pretty good for me

    The thickness of the juice also depends on the type of flavoring, for example, Clouds Of Vapor makes 100% VG and use organic flavoring that is suspended in alcohol so their ejuice is very thin.

    more pg= more throat hit (with nicotine). more vg= more vapor. vg also tends to mute flavor. i currently use 50/50 with a dripping atty. good vapor production, and good taste balance. everyone has different preferences.
