The only advice I've got is if you are planing to ever get your AC recharged at a shop that has 134A charging equipment they will not recover anything but R12 or 134A.

Freeze12 is a blend of a couple of refigerants. I would not use it. It's a cheap way around buying R12.

No matter what you fix, there will always be something else to fix..
"Warranty" is just another way of postponing the inevitable.

Freeze-12 is a blend of R134A(80%) and R142B(20%). With that said, one would wonder why not just move to R134A?

Freeze-12 also requires a special tap to install. The supplier of the product(somewhere in Calif) gets about $20-$25 for the special tap. After you do all of the math, the cost isn't justified. If you want R-12 efficiency, stay with R-12. I've read good and bad about Freeze-12.

My 2 cents.
