Hey NickD -

I just read a post elswhere where the poster says he (as a non-mechanic) can't buy R134a in Wisconsin-- I did not know there were states restricting this sale- can you confirm????

The number one A/C diagnostic tool there is- is to know how much refrigerant is in the system- this can only be done by recovering and weighing the refrigerant!!
Just a thought.... 65% of A/C failures in my 3200 car diagnostic database (GM vehicles) are due to loss of refrigerant due to a leak......

On a trial period, was that last year or the year before? Auto chain stores were selling it for around seven bucks a can openly and no certificate was required. I gather that trial period is over. I never purchased any, always going to IL, MN, or MI and picked up a 30 pound tank for around 90 bucks. So why should I pay 240 bucks for a bunch of cans?

WI used to be a wonderful state but feel all the gangsters from Chicago came up here and took over our government, debating whether I should move or stay here where my entire family is at. Talking to my family, maybe we should all move. Any suggestions?
