R12 fluid is like a grand for a big container of it where the R134 is only $80 so u would want to convert it over
Cody,
d?mned ! Don´t know, what you mean... Am I on the right way and you´re talking about "converting the fluids"?

If yes: FORGET IT !!! Converting isn´t possible, because you can damage your complete AC system. What you can, is a complete recontruction to R134 only. Then you need complete new gaskets etc. But this is to expensive here in Germany (500 bucks)

Arrrghhh : I NEED ONLY 1.0 - 1.5 LTR !!!

You have to have a license or know someone that has a license in the states to buy R12. I haven't kept up with the pricing, but I think it's going for somewhere around $50 for a 12 oz can.
If you are lucky enough to find someone that can buy the R12 for you, go for it. Just remember if you have a leak, you will need more R12 later and it's not going to be any cheaper.

You can damage your system if you don't properly convert it. If you don't cut corners, I think it would work out well. Of course, it's not as easy to convert as adding a can of R12, but you will probably have to convert sometime in the future due to cost and availability of R12. I successfully converted an 86 Mustang SVO to R134, vent temps at 40F. I honestly don't believe it is quite as good as R12, but $3 a can makes me feel better! :cool:

The www.aircondition.com sight is a great place for the DIY with AC problems/questions. Also has a bunch of archives to look through.

Good luck finding the R12.
