I have had much experience with this issue. You can only change over when: The compressor and the hoses are changed as new. I have seen the old hoses used and they are not barrier hoses. They will absorb some or all of the oil and the compressor will die. If you do not flush properly, you will have an acid corrosion problem (I don't know why, I'm not a chemist), but I have seen it before many times.
