RE: Cost of making e juice?
I get 4oz of flavoring from Capella for $20. That 4oz translates to about 118ml, so at 20% flavoring that is almost 12 50ml bottles for each 4oz flavoring base. Costs of bases vary of course.

The strength of juice is always stated in milligrams per millilitre. So 6mg juice, is 6mg per millilitre which is 300 milligrams of nicotine in 50ml.

ahh ok....flavors here are $13.79 for 120ml. That makes more sense....

all told it's costing me $1.37 per 15ml of juice , and thats buying my VG in small volume. nicotine labs has 1gallon VG for $21 wich would cut cost significantly.

I've been reading and calculating in my head then I realized that the variables are all contributing factors to the per unit cost to DiY....

I'm calculating that it cost me approx $1.50 for 30 ml bottle when I purchase my bottles in bulk (50) and my base by the gallon and flavours in large 120 or 250 ml sizes - the larger the liquid bulk purchased, the less per ml.... for my own sampling and friends, I have dozens of glass bottles that I have washed and recycle....friends who want free sampling as testers, are more than happy to give me empty bottles....Good

RE: Cost of making e juice?
I can make a litre of QC (0 nic) for less than the cost of a packet of 20 stinky things here (Around $10). It costs around $1.5 per mg/ml of nicotine in a litre of juice. So around $22 for a litre of 12mg juice, $34 for a litre of 24mg juice, $13 for a litre of 3mg.

The bottles and postage are a big percentage of the cost. Litre bottles cost around a dollar each - postage a lot more than that.

RE: Cost of making e juice?
A gallon of 99.7% VG is $54.99 CDN
A gallon of 99.9% PG is $59.99 CDN
A gallon custom mixed is $64.99 CDN

FREE shipping on $150+

I did simple (I like simple math because I can't do complicated math)

A gallon is 3785 ml therefore even without adding flavours or nic, that alone represents 32 120 ml bottles (around here a 120 ml bottle of ejuice is $50 and therefore $1600 retail PLUS tax) and with 30 ml bottles is 126 bottles even on low end @ $15.00 each is $1890 retail....so simple me will happily spend $150 for vaping DiY supplies Smile
