As well, you'll need some serious coils to use 100% VG.

BigS, do some more research before going all out VG.... I'm sure someone here will have mentioned that anything above 70% VG is a coil killer....85%+ VG and I don't know how well it would absorb into an RDA coil...unless you vape, drip, wait 30 seconds, then vape again...and repeat... Smile

I have been using this juice exclusively, so possibly he is misleading me someway(I trust the folks here more than him). It has not been destroying my coils and the flavor is great, so it is probably 80/20 or even 70/30. I noticed it is a lot better and less harsh than their regular mix (50/50). So anyone would probably notice a difference going from 50/50 to 80/20, if you get my meaning.

My princess vapes 80/20 and the flavour is awesome - kills coils at 3x the rate my 65-70% DiY does but the way I look at it, a coil is about $5 and lasts 2-3 days while a pack of cigs was $14 a day....so it's a win-win any way I see it.....

80/20 vs 50/50 is easy to spot side by side even in a bottle......

Thanks for the advice, when I started out vaping it was 50/50 and I choked like I was a kid smoking for the first time every time, so I guess I always want to go for broke on VG. But I can honestly say I've never had a problem with anything 80/20, and only Firebrand Juice hurts me at 70/30, all others are fine.

  I'm with Michael on this, you need to have at least some pg in your juice, it stabilizes your blend, and it is also a solvent, it helps everything blend together and once it has done that, it keeps things  from separating. some flavors take longer to blend together, that's why you have to steep certain blends, you are mostly just letting the pg do its thing. but the more pg you use, the harsher it's gonna be. I never mix more than 25% pg, and it's not harsh at all. And in my experiences, it's the blends with high amounts of dark flavorings that gunk up my coils, not the vg or pg.

As I stated earlier, whatever this "organic juice is"...it is Not killing my coils. I have been using the same coil for the last 5 days with no sign of degradation. The flavors are still awesome. When my coil gets gunked up, I will put a new one in and soak the other in alcohol. A 5 pack of coils for my TfV4 generally will last me months.

my experience leads me to agree with Michael as well .
i have made juices as high as 90% VG , after exceeding 80% the juice wicks poorly and just doesn't bust the clouds as well and at 100% ( yup driped strait vg ) the juice attomizes faster than it can wick even in an rda making power rips and chain vaping un pleasant.
