    Depending on the content and how it's stored etc' I normally find juice is good for a couple of years. I've got some from a few years back that's fine but I do find the custard based juices have the least longevity.

    If you think about the content of the juice (PG, VG, Nicotine) you can store it individually for 10 years so it's only really the concentrates that could give you a problem and most of those are not fresh so again it's fine.

    Longevity pretty much depends on how it's stored rather than its contents.

    Vape on buddy it'll be fine.

    Was it opened and how was it stored? The main concern to me would be the flavouring as (to my understanding) that is what limits the shelf life. Personally I would err on the side of caution as lungs can be sensitive things and most of us have abused them enough already but I'm sure some one more knowledgable will come along soon :)

    i did throw in some vg juice with higher nicotine level and a flavoring so it went from full pg juice to pg and vg right?

    yeah, the added vg has made it get a vg percentage too, also the nic will have increased with the added nic content...unlikely to do you any harm, I've had out of date juices and they have been fine :)

    Yep as others have stated, normally good for a couple of years at least, if it smells or tastes funky the bin it (responsibly) but if not, then vape on!

    It will all come down to what it is lol!
    gorilla goo, or zebrafish undercrackers, might be funky unless they state what flavours are in them ;)
