    I'd say it wouldn't be worth it dude.

    It's like 40 - 70 bucks for a regass...

    We got a regas done on a suzuki over the weekend I rang about 5 places all quoted $110 for a regas

    As for DIY, do you have the right equipment to be doing a DIY regass?

    new laws have been intrduced about re gasing. Auto elects have had to undertake a training session and fork out the dollars for a new machine that sucks the gas back in re cycles and re uses. This way the gas is no longer escaped to atmosphere.

    If you want a re gas done PM me and I can point you in the right direction.

    I am a refrigeration mechanic, you by law and unless you know people you are NOT allowed to purchase any type of refrigerant, you have to hold a refrigeration handling licence, which you have to complete a apprenticeship in plumbing electronics and then do a costly automotive or split system course or just complete refrigeration apprentiship. Buying the tools is easy just go down to your local Heatcraft, Actrols or what have you, and they are pricy. Plus your car dose not take that much refrigerant, and you buy bottles min I think 5kg.
    Also when you have your licence by law your record is checked against how much refrigerant you have handed in compared to purchase, as it is also against the law to top up a system without reclaiming system repairing leak and then you can fill with new refrigerant.
    As you can see there is alot of rules and regulations that govern refrigerant use, as they are bad for the ozone and green house emissions.
    Hope it makes sense

    by law your NOT only are you NOT allowed to purchase but your not allowed to handle gas either

    But i donít trust Refrigeration Mech from Vic anyway they are controlled by plumbers (totally a different trade) ,And they uses Propane(R290) in there car A/C Systems pfff.......Not allowed in NSW

    there is a product on the market called hychill. you dont need a license to buy it or use it in nsw or vic (need a license in qld) . it replaces h12 and r134a. u dont need to change any oils or seals.

    but if u need new gas there must be a leak or sumthin along them lines.

    theres a product to seal up the leaks. its called seal-pro.

    Nope, I am a qualified a/c installer so I know what I am doing.

    How the hell can you have a refrigerant to replace another one and NOT need a license.......?

    And i would never waste my time with drop-ins just use what everyone else is using
