Hello, yes, that is exactly what I am doing. Since I diluted the 150mg nic to 75 that is what I put in the top for nic strength.

If you put 18mg into the Target Strength box there is no way it would change to 24mg.

Tell me your Target VG/PG ratio, how many flavors and the percentage of each flavor. Also what is the quantity of the ejuice you are making and I'll post a snap shot of what it should look like.

What the 24% is saying is that the 7.2ml of Nic you are adding is 24% of the total mixture (volume). The total mixture is 30ml
30ml divided by 7.2ml is 24%. It is not 24mg strength. It is 24% of the total volume.

ml = volume of measurement in milliliters
mg = strength of the Nicotine in milligrams

Thank you very much for your help. Now it makes sense to me.
