r22 Replacing R12 and 134a?

I just saw an eBay item where the seller is stating that R22 can directly retrofitted in R12 and R134a systems.

I never considered that to be an option. Sound feasible?

Here's the link: http:

Also, I think you were confused, he's selling several different refrigerants, not saying to replace R12 with R22....

It might also earn you a visit from the EPA for violating the clean air act. R22 is not approved for MVAC.

EPA neither has approved corn flakes for MVAC use, but why would you use that? R-22 requires 2.5 times the operating pressure to work so it won't work either.
