    I can't find if this has been done before (it probably has), but I'd like to get an idea how much e-liquid people get through in the course of the average day. I pretty much chain vape, but at low wattage, so I find that 4-5ml is about as much as I can physically manage.

    Anyone else keeping tabs?

    I personally go through about 5-7ml MTL and about 15-20ml DL on a daily basis, a regular work day one can say. I honestly don't even want to think about those amounts on weekends when there is wine or whisky involved and i'm just relaxing at home doing buggerall.

    You don't vape inside?
    I don't know if nobody told you, but indoor activities is one of the perks you get when you drop the stinky cigarettes...

    There is no conclusive proof that it wont harm my daughter, so no, we dont vape inside, yes I have seen the videos on how little chemical is in vapor but with the life of the most precious person in the world I dont take any chances :)

    I totally get that, we never vape around the kids either. I do however vape up a storm in my little office during the day while the kids are at school.

    I don't keep tabs. Sometimes I vape a little, sometimes I vape a lot. I don't really care. I vape as I feel like it.

    I've started to try the whole no vaping inside thing.
    Noticed that it reduces consumption especially during the cold season.

    Did the same when I was a smoker and it helped me cut down from 2 and a half packs a day to a pack a day.

    I usually go through between 30 and 40ml of juice a day. The missus probably 20ml to 25ml.

    In my case I don't think it's even a nic thing anymore. It's there. I can vape where I am. I vape.
    If I'm forced to go outside and leave my workstation then I will vape less.

    Pretty similar to @zadiac . I do no MTL and vape at 3mg.

    I almost solely DIY apart from the occasional Red Pill one-shot. Cost is so minimal that I don't keep track.

    I would guess around 20ml/day.

    I never tried to keep track either but I’m guessing anywhere between 10 and 20ml, more during weekends, depending on the setup of the day and the circumstances as I also don’t vape in the office. If I’m busy, I don’t crave for it. If I’m chillaxing the mod(s) doesn’t leave my hand!

    At a guess, I do 30mls a day. My kids have left home and I vape everywhere except the bedroom because I'm not allowed... well I do ninja vape when the misses is in the shower or tidying up the house!

    I am probably on 10-15 ml of ADV per day, but then I can go just as much on an evening with a yummy session juice if the mood takes me.

    All of this is DTL @3mg nic. I used much less when I was MTL but it cost me more in commercial juice.

    I'm pretty much back to full time MTL since the beginning of the year
    Dont know what happened but direct lung started making me cough again
    So I did MTL for about a week and it just stuck !

    Am now vaping about 10ml a day I would estimate (I use several devices during the day):
    The Reo 5ml desk vape is normally empty
    The Rose MTL 3ml is normally empty
    Then my Evod and a few others get several toots here and there - so I would say about another 2-3ml

    When I was on DL - it was higher - probably around 15ml per day, maybe a bit more.

    Forgot to mention, I vape higher nic than most
    So that's also why I vape a bit less

    My MTL is at about 9-12mg these days . Sometimes its probably a bit lower - I "eyeball" my nic addition - so sometimes its a bit low and I get frustrated so I toot more. Sometimes I put a wee bit too much and its nice & strong. Lol. Always a bit of a surprise. I like it like that.

    When I was doing DL as well - my DL setups were at about 6mg and my MTL at 12-18mg.

    I'm not trying to actively ween myself down on nic - but I think its just happening naturally over time.

    To be fair I am probably vaping more nowadays since the lockdown. Before I would often be out and about and in meetings so I vaped less.

    Seems as if every two years someone asks this :).
    This thread is from 2016 and this one is from 2018.
    Perhaps @Admins could combine them everything. It might be interesting to see how 2020 differs from the other years!

    The everyone is around the 20ml range. I noticed my broken grammar, so I left it.

    Made me look twice!
