Most used/sucessful PG/VG ratios you use in your tank
« on: March 15, 2011, 12:54:35 PM »
Just wondered what you seem to think is best for you?

I tried 40-60 - PG/VG today but it seemed to have slight troubles wicking unless I was making sure I gave it some cold draws to get it through

Thanks all in advance

I always go with a ratio of more PG than VG (80/20), because I likes my throat being hit like a blacksmiths anvil!  :D

Well I've used a 50/50 PG/AG mix in my tank but the AG is diluted VG.  Anyone know what TW Platinum Ice AG is in terms of VG and ionised water ratio please?  ;D

85/15 VG/water, so a 50/50 mix of PG/AG will actually be 50/42.5/7.5 PG/VG/water :)

Well, I voted 100% VG because that's what I'm shooting for, but I know technically that's not what I'm vaping.  For one thing, I think all flavor concentrates are made with mostly PG, and for Tank use (which is all I use now) I dilute my VG with distilled water (not sure of the exact ratio because I don't measure it), so there's that.  So, since I mix at a high flavor concentrate percentage (usually 20% or above) my mixes are probably nearer to 65-70% VG. :)

What does 80/20 PG/VG mean ? I have PI 54mg TW liquid (not sure if its ag,vg or pg) and I use AG diluent. Can some1 explain those ratios to me? For example to make 5ml of liquid at 20% flavour I use - 1ml flavour, 1ml Nicotine, 3ml diluent. Is that correct and good mix for tank? Also what diluent do you guys like most?

I decided on 100% VG. Not too interesting in getting throat-blasted.

You have no problems with the tank wicking using 100% VG?

Well I can partly answer if that helps?  ;D You're right in your mix for a 20% flavour (1ml in a total of 5ml).  My understanding of what 80/20 PG/VG means is that the combined liquid after adding the flavour is 80% PG and 20% VG, assuming the flavour is part of the PG.  AG complicates things a bit because its not all VG becuase of being diluted with water (15%).  If your PI is PG, your mix would be 40%PG/60%AG or 40%PG/51%VG/9% ionised water.
I've only used 50% or more PG or all PEG400 so far and they've worked well.  :D
