+1 on the OEM. I changed over for cost purposes on the Mondial T and was very disastisfied. Not to mention I truly didn't save any real money...I mean, how many times do you charge a system...was given bad advice....

not that much in savings.

SO< I had Ferrari change it back to OEM....take this advice, stick with OEM on AC

Stay away from the R134a. It is meant for large condensors and evaporators which earlier cars do not have.

It is very inefficient on R12 systems.

true, even with [typical] mods it will not work correctly

It will work but since R134a is not as dense a material as R12 it does not expand through the expansion valve with same degree of cooling effect and does not dispel as well the heat it has absorbed from w/in the vehicle.

So it's great on newer cars that have been designed for those aspects but not as a retrofit.

If you have a fully functioning sealed R12 system leave it alone despite what any environmentalist says.

If you have an older R12 system that's leaking, fix the leaks and refill with R12.
