I doubt "everyone" will reply, so I'll repeat my prior post that the compressor doesn't matter since no liquid refrigerant is stored in the compressor (that would be bad). 2.5 cans of any refrigerant is "about right", but better to use a low-side gage. CA has special R-134A cans w/ spring-loaded valve, which you return for a $10 refund, and you can return w/ left-over refrigerant. Perhaps other states too. If you over-fill, the compressor clutch can start slipping, then soon melts. A problem we see on those 115 F days in Sacramento.
