    Was it a mistake getting 100% VG NIC? Mixing pain!

    So on Monday my NIC will rock up, I ordered 48ml 500ml 100% VG. I am using online calculators but having a hard time getting the ratio to 80PG/20VG (getting Vegetable Glycerin (VG):-3.5 ml) I have some doublers at 50/50 and 100PG. I am looking for my final nic as 18MG. The reason going for 80/20 is that was most online places well as the common ratio and I hear the TH is better (just about to come off the smokes)

    What ratio doublers should I purchase to mix with my 100VG NIC?
    What ratio of NIC should I but in the future?

    So I am looking to make 80/20, 50/50 and maybe something in the middle of the two at 65/35.

    Items I have....
    1x 48ml NIC 100VG (soon)
    2x Doublers at 50/50
    2x Doublers at 100PG
    1x Bottle of PG (think 200ml)
    1x Bottle of VG (think 200ml)

    Hopefully someone can help, or inform me on what to order. Should have done more research before buying! newbie error! I have my PV working and charged ready to go!

    The ratios are all about what you enjoy. I use 100% VG all the time as I prefer it. There is no magic ratio for PG VG blends. VG makes thicker vapor and PG supposedly gives more throat hit. Experiment and see what works for you.

    I like to order 100mg nic gives you more control to PG/VG ratios and works out cheaper in the long run. But i usually go 50/50 with doublers or 100VG with 10% water minus PG for flavours. As I don't even have any PG in bottles.
    I think 50/50 is good but. Too much PG stuffs me up.

    Yeah, don't stress. Once you get your vapes going, then you can worry about your ratios to suit your particular tastes/needs. All good. Have fun with it

    Best Ratio you could get is approx 70pg 30 vg which to behonest isnt that much differant and should still do the trick for u

    How many mls are your doublers? Have you tried this - Filbert's Vaping Toolkit

    I would of gone 100mg PG nic but that's me. So much easier to work with.

    In saying that though, my very first order I made the mistake of ordering VG nic. Next order was PG and haven't bought VG nic since.

    With the aim of 18mg/ml, the lowest VG ratio you can get with what you have is 37.5% To achieve that, and I'll work to 100ml total as that's easy for you to work out with your desired amount, it'd be 37.5ml VG48 (nic), 50ml PG doubler and 12.5ml PG. To get a 50PG50VG ratio, just change the last 12.5ml PG to 12.5ml VG.

    I've never cared too much about ratios to be honest, it takes the fun away. Mix to strength and be done with it
