Longfill E-Liquids: The Future of Vaping Amidst Upcoming Vape Tax Changes?

longfill e- liquids the future?

The vaping landscape in the UK has experienced significant shifts since the introduction of the Tobacco Products Directive in 2016, which limited nicotine-containing e-liquids to 10ml bottles. This regulation gave rise to the popularity of shortfill e-liquids, which offered a workaround by allowing vapers to mix nicotine shots into larger volumes of nicotine-free e-liquids.

As we approach the expected vape tax in October 2026, another innovation, longfill e-liquids, is gaining traction. These products promise to maintain the diversity and customisation that vapers enjoy and potentially offer a way to circumvent the impending financial burdens of the new tax.

Longfill e-liquids, on the other hand, are similar in concept but differ significantly in their application.These bottles contain a small amount of highly concentrated flavouring, leaving substantial room not just for nicotine shots but also for additional diluents (VG, PG, or a mix of both). This allows for precise adjustments to nicotine strength and PG/VG ratios, catering to the sophisticated preferences of experienced vapers.

Advantages of Longfill E-Liquids

Customisation and Control:

  • Longfill e-liquids provide vapers with the ability to fine-tune their vaping experience. By adjusting the amount of diluent and nicotine, users can achieve their preferred throat hit, vapour production, and nicotine intake.

Intense and Refined Flavours:

  • The concentrated nature of longfill flavours means that once diluted, they can offer a richer and more immersive taste experience. This particularly appeals to flavour enthusiasts who seek depth and complexity in their vaping.


  • Longfill e-liquids could become a more economical option with the impending vape tax. They potentially reduce the tax burden by allowing users to purchase larger, less frequent batches of concentrated products, which could be less heavily taxed than ready-to-vape solutions.

Environmental Benefits:

  • Longfills can contribute to reducing plastic waste. By consolidating what would otherwise be several purchases of smaller bottles into one larger, customisable package, longfills offer an eco-friendlier alternative.

Challenges and Considerations

While the benefits are clear, longfill e-liquids require a more hands-on approach, which may appeal to only some. The need to measure and mix several components means that longfills are best suited to those who enjoy an involved preparation process. For new vapers or those looking for convenience, shortfills remain the preferred option.
