Hi

It has R134A in it at the moment, as put in by a 'proper engineer' nearly 3 years ago, which is what I'm going to top it up with. Leak stopper/Dye/Oil is put in seperately from another can.

In 3 years its gone from freezing to just cold, so not leaking much, and I don't help by not using it all winter. I have also nipped up a joint with a small amount of residue on it.

I tried one of these DIY cans and it did squat. got the proper guy out and told him of my DIY try with the can and he just smiles and said that the cans contain such a small amount of the gass they are almost no use.... hay ho you can but try.

The Halfords type kits are actually useless, as they do have so little gas in them, the proper kits with the separate cans of gas and re-useable hoses, gauges etc are the way to go.

Just to report that I managed to top up both my Shogun and Mrs Nashers Pug 206 for £54 the pair.
And of course I still have the equipment, so topping up another car would be @£15 for just the gas.

The kit was easy to use, and now after a few weeks both systems are still very cold.

I added some sealant and oil to both systems before adding the gas, so hopefully it'll be in there for a couple of years or more.
