    70/30 VG/PG in Innokin T18

    A mate of mine just bought an Innokin T18 and seems to be getting constant dry hits. I'm guessing it's because the 70/30 mix he's using is too thick and it's not wicking properly.

    Is there any harm in thinning the juice down with a bit of distilled water? I'm thinking 50/50 might be a better mix for that setup, but 70/30 is all he could get locally, so if we can salvage his purchase of that juice to help him off the stinkies that'd be great.

    Any tips?

    If you use DW with pure VG, you'd normally want 5 - 10%. Given the fact there's already some PG in the mix, I'd add 1% DW, give it a good shake and try again. If it's still too thick, add more in 1% increments.
    His wick may already be burnt and keep tasting that way, though...

    Thanks mate, I'll throw in a fresh coil and put in a drop or 2 of DW into the 60 mL bottle and see if that helps.

    I can't use PG, other than what's in the flavour concentrates. Too much kills my throat and sinuses, and messes with my breathing. Also gives me heartburn.
    I use VG, around 10% flavour, 5% DW and 4% 100mg/ml nicotine in all my DIY. Vapes like a sub ohm dream.

    I'd go for at least 2 or 3 ml's in 60 ml's if that helps

    He is coming over shortly, so will give it 2 mL to start and see what happens

    Yep... my bad. I read it as 70% PG, thus the suggestion of 1%. I'd aim at around 2.5% - 5% DW in 70% VG...

    I added about 3 mL and so far, no worries. With a fresh coil, chain vaped quite a bit with no dry hits. Before, after 3-4 decent hits you'd get a dry one and then have to give it a few prime puffs to get it going again (sometimes this wouldn't work and you'd have to stop for a few minutes). Even though Innokin don't seem to suggest priming the coil before hand, I put a few drops into the juice holes before we filled the tank up and let it sit for a few minutes. We tried that earlier with the thicker juice to no help.

    I gave him a bottle of my 6mg flavourless, and he seems to be satisfied (same mix, 70/30 now diluted). The juice he bought locally was nasty - some tobacco flavour that tastes like more like dirty socks.

    Glad you got that sorted, I haven't had a dry hit since I lit the wrong end of a cigarette year's ago lol.

    I've not had a proper dry hit for a few weeks... but a grub screw came loose on the moonshot recently, and changed the ohms to an unsteady 1.7, from 0.45. Hitting that shit at 50w (because I didn't notice...) almost broke my lungs!
