If you count that I paid around $100 for a case  - then the can was under
$10.   The R-12 lube is around $6 at your FLAPS.  I have at least 3 more
cars that I need to do similarly.

You may need an adaptor for the can - these can use the screw on type same
as 134a cans, but I think they have the smooth top as well.   This was
easier for than the 134a conversions I've done, as you can do away with
adaptors, and don't need to evacuate the system completely.

So not counting the cost of guages, etc.  Under $20.  If you get just 2-3
cans, probably more like $15 a can - and can is probably enough to charge a
