    the topic came up at work on how bad my a/c sucks, and a co-worker mentioned something called freeze-12, he said its supposed to do better than R-134a in systems originally designed for R-12. he also mentioned he never changed anything like o-rings or hoses, and has no problems with it, says the instructor of his auto class told him all about it. so what do u guys think/know about Freeze-12? thanks

    Look up Red Tek. Theres a farmer that shows up the Pima County Fair here in Tucson with this stuff. Its compatible with r-12 and 134. Alot of heavy equipment uses it. Semi trucks too. It's fairly cheap and it environmentally safe. I'm gonna use it the 1st time my r-12 blows out. Heard nothing but good about it.

    I have used Freeze 12 in my blazer before with pump #1. It worked pretty good. We use it a lot in our semi trucks and there is little to no difference between freeze 12 and R12 temperature wise. I highly recommend the stuff! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    don't use Redtek, its ok for tractors but is pretty explosive from what I hear. So if you get in an accident and it starts leaking, watch out.
