I vape. Got a killer sale from a vape store that is going out of business, but not my regular nicotine levels. I got 5 bottles of 0mg/30 ml and 5 bottles of 18mg/30ml. I normally use 12mg. Trying to figure out the math to get to 12mg. I know if I split a bottle of 0 and 18, I'd get to 9mg/30 ml. So, maybe 22.5 ml of 18mg and 7.5 ml of 0mg get me there?

One way to look at it is that mixing two bottles of the 18mg/30ml with one of the 0mg/30ml would give you 36mg/90ml, which is the same concentration as 12mg/30ml.

So, you want twice as much 18mg/30ml as 0mg/30ml, however you choose to actually combine them. You'll end up with 2/3*(18mg/30ml) which is 12mg/30ml.

I used to mix a variety of liquids, some were higher than normal nic lvl, some with potent flavor, then if it was too much, I'd just use some glycerin from walmart to get it to the "just right". Used the same to cut nicotine to below 3mg.
