    Wow 25-30 ml a day?! Thats quite a lot! Anyways, I'm okay to switching to this one but as I said I'm now almost cetain that I'm allergic to PG. Theres no other explanation of this problem happening.... And since I can't return it I must seek for an alternative.... Now my friend told me that he is not really vaping a lot with the 90/10 liquid. As what we discussed he is vaping something like 4x 4.5ml a week (on average). I'm sure that i will vape twice as much and I'm wondering if its worth the risk anyway because If i cant vape anything with more PG from that it is pointless to save the coils... Oh and btw thanks a lot for the quick responses , much appreciated man!

    If you get in to DIY you can use distilled water instead of PG to thin the VG a bit.
    Never really used in anger myself.
    Not sure if anyone sells very low PG juice (in most (but not all) flavours) thinned down with distilled water.

    Worst case you could add some to your 90% VG if the tank was struggling. Flavour would diminish a little (or perhaps the water may carry better anyway?).
    Don't think you need a high % of water. Maybe 2% would thin a good bit but I could be wrong?

    That actually sounds like a great solution! What would the others say? Do you think this might sort the problem? It might be even 80% vg ratio as long as the water wont bother much?

    It NEEDS to be distilled water, from a chemist etc. NOT just halfords de-ionised.
    Maybe start a different thread if no answers here such as - "How much distilled water should I add to a mix" in the mixology section.
    Explain briefly your issue of PG intolerance (maybe) and what you should add to 80/90% pre-mixed juice.

    If you get into diy which to be honest is just like mixing a cocktail, try substituting the PG for AG as 100% VG would be gloopy as hell.

    Most oneshot concentrates are mixed with PG though unfortunately. You would have to ask the vendors.

    you can buy AG from most diy juice suppliers... I bought mines from here....

    Just to say @bixtape , 6-7ml a day isn't over doing it. I vape at least 30ml a day at 3mg and I'm sure a lot do a hell of a lot more.

    I tried 12mg juice sub ohming when I first started before I knew anything and it put me off sub ohming for months. :D Stuck with my mini nautilus for a while after that.
    I then gave the sub tank another go with 6mg juice and everything was fine. Down to 3mg now but I do have to chain vape ;)
    Hope you find something out at the doc's.
