    I mix at 70/30 and I guess I had brain fart or something because I mixed up 70 PG with 30 VG and wasted a 120 ml bottle.

    I did kind of the same thing once, pg grams for the nic, vg grams for the pg. Then wow vg is only .12 grams.....ooops.

    I'm under the very distinct impression, and ELR agrees with me, that the percentage is written as PG/VG. My mixes are 35/65, PG/VG.

    So you mixed 70/30 correctly, right? When what you really wanted was 30/70? Or am I confused?

    You are not confused but most vapers are. It IS PG first then VG.

    The correct way to list a ratio is with the Higher First so that is why 70/30 VG/PG you list it that way.
