    That sounds about normal I would guess... I think I go through about 10-15ml a day maybe a bit less and I vape quite a bit. I don't think there's really a way to cut down on juice except to use less power or vape less? If it's hitting you in the pocket you may have to look at one of those options... or cheaper/DIY juice?

    DIY comes out at about R1.50 per ml, so your current consumption of 15ml per day would cost you around R22.50 - slightly less than a pack of 20 smokes. That includes buying more concentrates than you use and therefore building up a stock of concentrates over time. The start-up costs are low too - roughly R400 for the scale and all the bottles/implements you need.

    Ouch, there is the problem. My best bet, get a new tank. I would suggest that you start with a rdta where you can buy and build. You will get the hang of it very quickly in building your own coils. That way you will save on your juice flow.

    The problem is not that the tank is heavy on juice. You are heavy on Juice. because if you are not vaping the tank is not using up your juice :D
    with ciggies you know when to stop, but with Vaping you dont know when to stop as the tank is still full. But yes, DIY is the way to go.

    Plenty of DIY threads here. A starter kit is a good way to start. Includes all the necessities and study the DIY mixing threads for a juice you might like and get those concentrates. I started with a simple RY4 mix and worked from there.

    Good luck and feel free to ask any question.

    Regards

    Scale
    Rechargeable batteries for the scale
    Half-a-dozen amber glass bottles than can store 30-50ml for mixing/steeping
    The same number of plastic HDPE or PET dropper/spout/gorilla bottles that can store 30-50ml for the final juice
    500ml PG
    At least a liter of VG (if you like 70/30 juice)
    100ml nic
    Look up some good beginner recipes
    Get some more recipes from Enyawreklaw
    Get the flavours needed in the recipes you like, picking flavours used in two or more recipes
    Download a free recipe app like eJuice Me Up or DIY Juice Calculator
    Watch a few videos on how to get started
    Watch Wayne's videos on flavours and mixing
    Mix

    It's as simple as that.

    There are several forum vendors on the link I gave you. Check their sites as well, compare prices and range, and pick one that suits your needs and pocket.

    What type coils are you using?some builds are thirstier and the substantial coils such as Alien and Claptons' need high power and long ramping that can contribute to higher juice consumption IMO.Some tanks like my Petri and SM just seem to drink it up no matter what builds I try but the flavor they deliver is fair dinkum .
