What do any of you know about some of the Freon that one can buy off eBay. Some is New Old stock, but some I believe is made in Russia India Mexico and of course China. Has any one purchased foreign made R-12, and had good luck with it. With Chinese past reputation of having all kinds of stuff in their products real leery of using that.

Don't know about foreign-made R-12 personally (some countries still allow manufacture), one would have to "believe" that it really is 100% R-12 unless one has it tested. New old stock US-made R-12 doesn't go bad in a can, cannot polymerize, absorb moisture, oxidize, etc.

It's illegal to import R-12. If you buy some from a person in a foreign country, you risk having it seized by customs, or worse. Only NOS, recycled, or imported before the ban can be sold in the USA.
