I replaced the R12 in my MIL's car with Duracool. Works great, blows colder
than the R12, and only cost $20 for the refrigerant. You do have to make
sure you put a large label on the system to avoid unfortunate accidents with
chain-smoking A/C techs.

Subject: Poll: What do Most People Do When their R12 Runs Low

Those who have older Audis will eventually reach the day when their AC is
feeling not as cold as they want it.  I'm wondering what people do mostly.
The choices that I can think of are:

1.) Live with it...Not so bad where I am, in Montreal, or the anywhere
north...can't imagine this is an option in Arizona...

2.) Spend $400 and Do the R134 conversion...live with the 20% reduction in
efficiency or any other problems the conversion entails

3.) Go to Mexico and get an R12 fillup, or obtain R12 in some other way

4.) Some other option (specify)
