    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.

    I would run 30/70 in any premade coil.

    You could try 20/80 and it'll probably work but if you get a coil where the cotton was packed to tight, your coils gonna fry real quick.

    Only difference between the two is 20/80 will be smoother and produce slightly thicker clouds, but it's thicker juice so you need a coil whos wicking can keep up with your vaping.

    Anything higher than 60VG will be fine. If you like a lot of throat hit, stay down around 60/70VG. If you like a smoother vape, go up to 70/80/max VG.

    Think I'm roughly 80-90% VG here. Got my unflavored "base" as max VG from Heartland. I know I've probably added a bit of PG with some of the few flavorings I've added. Been watching to limit my PG though. For me max VG seems a smoother, more mellow draw. I know it's said PG carries flavorings better but I'm not so sure, finding in my experience even VG carries flavors well enough to suit. Then again take my opinions as that and with a dash of salt, got no olfactory nerves so no sense of smell and limited sense of taste. Still, I enjoy the VG's texture better than what to me seems an oily texture of the PG.

    Updating: I seem to vape in fits through a day. Sometimes I will chain vape, others not.
    My coils heat themselves to a point of being blackened. It isn't so much a coating of gunk or built up juice as they heat fair enough for me that I carbonize them. I blue them during setting up with a fresh coil, tweaking it out. Then, after that I get a good "burn" going and they carbonize. I could possibly get a coil set up to last six months, maybe longer if I wasn't always fidgeting with a coil.

    I switch between 70/30 and 80/20 blends depending on my liquid while using the Prince tank. Tried all the coils and the Q4 was my preference.

    I constantly vape throughout the day, so my coil life wont be as long as most people. But both blends last me a good deal of time. If I had to split hairs I would go for a 70/30 blend. It will last a bit longer and still offer great flavor and vapor production.

    I use my diy up to 10pg 90 vg in a Wismec Gen 3 -300 with a og Crown. I have zero issues and my coils last 3 weeks. I nearly chain vape sometomes. Usually 5-10 seconds between pulls. Oh at 100 watts normally.

    I am a 50 50 no matter what the set up is. It is all personal taste. I like a bigger throat hit personalay

    Yeah dig the throat hit as well But I turn up the wattage for it. I have some high nic salts I cut down occasionally. But Idk psychologically a big cloud stimulates my brain in to thinking it is getting more without choking.

    clouds, hm. I do those at times. Like you though I'm not exactly a cloud chaser. Yes no fibbing it is nice to cloud up a room but I dunno, guess I rather enjoy the flavor and nicotine. I recall a cloudy drill hall once. Told after we made egress it had been yellow mustard instead of capsium pepper fog due to the weather. Think it probably also had something to do with a batch of punks what were so used to pepper spray it would hamper the rest of us. There would have been "no learning" to it. We all made sure to vomit sometime later through the day, nasty stuff I'd not want to risk another 30 seconds in.

    I only Vape High or Max VG no matter if I am Vaping Sub Ohm or Above Ohm. Just my preference and basically you can do whatever you want. Good Luck~!
