    It works... Much of a muchness in my opinion. It obviously comes out at varying VG/PG ratios based on how much PG the flavourings add to each recipe. I mix at 70/30 and sometimes mix 60/40 or 50/50 for MTL juice so I prefer having my components separate. The differences are negligible... Pre-mix base is easier when you're getting started or just lazy though ;)

    I guess this could be argued as being subjective... Some people say max VG is great. Other people say it does impact flavour marginally. I haven't tested enough to really say. Main reason for higher PG ratio in my books would be for viscosity and wicking reasons.

    Need to mix the same juice at varying ratios and test... but that sounds kinda boring at the moment :-D

    What I understand is that all I need do is add flavour

    If the pre-mix base already has nic in it then yes. If you start out with one shots then it's even easier... ;)

    If you buy nic, its in a dark glass bottle to protect the nic. I would not buy ready mix in a transparent plastic bottle. Halve the nic is probably gone buy the time it reach you

    hi, you are 100% correct about it being subjective, some people can pick up the slightest difference in taste, I came from 70/30 to max vg and to me the juice tasted the same

    you're also right on viscosity

    The PG/VG/Nic is the easy part. The "just add flavour" is what it is all about.

    I suppose if you are a juice connoisseur then mixing individually will dial in exactly what you want. I started with the separate pg/vg/nic and moved on to both 70/30 and 80/20 pre mix. It works for me and I can do a couple of hundred mls of ADV and a couple of 50mls bottles of session juice now in minutes. I use around 100 mls of adv every 5 days and at the same time can use a further 50 mls on session juice. So just about using a L per month. I also found that sub ohming has dropped my nic demand but upped the juice demand. I find the 80/20 works better in most of my tanks in preventing leakage and usually come out around 73/27 VG/PG by the time the pg flavours go in.
