RE: Help to calculate VG/PG ready mix dilution
Stick a bit more VG in (see previous calculations on here) 20ml, see how that vapes, add more or less to your next 20ml, see how that vapes.
I try to vape as high VG as possible, and I try to aim for 12mg nic, I never get there exactly, sometimes under, sometimes over.
However I know I'd struggle to find the difference between 11mg and 14mg Vaping at 1+oHms, and can't tell, honestly, the difference between 80/20 VG/PG and 75/25 VG/PG.
I appreciate if you are sub-ohming, a 3mg variation in nic strength is a lot, but as my coils can vary by as much as 0.5 of an oHm (I cant be arsed coiling carefully enough to hit a pre-determined value) then I don't find pretty wide variations make that much difference.
However that is said with the caveat that some folk have serious reactions to PG, but I assume they would be extremely careful in exactly what they vape.

RE: Help to calculate VG/PG ready mix dilution
Bluenose is right. 25% mix.

Look at it this way: in 80/20 mix you have 80 parts per 100 of VG, 20 parts per 100 of PG. That's 4 times as much VG as PG.

Take 100ml of your 75/25 mix. You have 75 parts per 100 of VG, 25 of VG. In this case, 75ml and 25ml. You want 4x as much VG, so add 25ml VG to make it up from 75 to 100 - that's 4* the 25ml of PG you have.
So, adding 25ml of VG will make 125ml of 80/20 fluid.

As a rounded up figure for 10ml of 80/20 base you would need to add 2ml of VG to every 8ml of your premix base (I believe)
Thank You very much . It's exactly what I am after 78
