Best VG/PG ratio for sub ohm vaping?
I'm brand new to vaping & I am receiving a Wismec Reuleaux RX GEN3 DUAL 230W Box Mod with a Smok TFV12 Prince Tank. 

My question is, since it's a sub ohm setup, which VG/PG ratio e liquid is best? I'll be using 0mg nicotine & the V12 Prince M4 Quadruple Coil, 0.17 Ohm, Rated for 30W-70W (Best at 40W-60W).

I've read that 80/20 is ideal but I'm wondering how 70/30 compares? Any input would be great! Thanks.

RE: Best VG/PG ratio for sub ohm vaping?
Unless you are only interested in cloud production, I would say 70-30 would be a much better choice. PG carries more flavor versus VG which makes more vapor. While PG can be harsh, you are vaping 0mg NIC so that would likely not be an issue at all. Also, VG is considerably thicker and does not wick to the coil nearly as well as higher PG juice, which is definitely a consideration for a disposable coil unit.

Welcome!

Hi Hollow - for me I would start with 70/30 VG/PG. PG carries more flavour which I think would suit you better. It is really a matter of personal choice. Best of luck and welcome to the forum. I suspect you will get quite a few responses to your question[Image: smile.gif].

At any wattage, I use 50:50 PG:VG. The flavour is better though the cloud production is lower. I'm not that bothered by clouds.
Oh and hello and welcome H1!

I like a nice fluffy friend on the exhale, and I use 60 VG 40 PG. I still get decent cloud and a much better flavor than a very high VG mix.

RE: Best VG/PG ratio for sub ohm vaping?
Told you Hollow - we do not like agreeing with each other[Image: tongue.gif]. Another thing to remember is that PG is much harsher on the throat than VG. I only vape MTL and use the same as Don at 50/50 but DTL sub ohming is a different ball game altogether. TW just likes to be different[Image: tongue.gif][Image: smile.gif]. Stick around - we have good fun here too.

How so? Seems post 2 and post 3 are startlingly similar to each other!

And with H1 not using nicotine, I do not think PG harshness will be an issue.

Your first reply was not through when I posted - I am just being mischievous.[Image: tongue.gif] However PG is harsher on the mouth and throat - nicotine or not - so there.
