Yes, but then again so is your gasoline at 60 psi. What about fleet trucks
that have been converted to run on propane? I am convinced that these are
just scare factors from a world paranoid of anything and everything. For
the price and performance of these refrigerants I think I'll put up with the
scare factors. I know the autofrost is non-flammable but even Gobels (sp?)
will admit that it isn't as efficient as the Hydrocarbon refrigerants.
