How much can you empty a 30lb drum?

Drum weights about 10 pounds now so I guess there is 3 or 4 pounds of freon left if an empty one weighs 6 pounds. I understand I can't get it completely empty since the low side system pressure precludes that, but practically speaking, how much more can I get out of it? I do have a heater on it.

Re: Refilling system but can't turn the engine on for a while

Maybe there is another name for it but the part in the back of the compressor that looks like a piston. http://www.fototime.com/FB7009D9C1E5C2E/large.jpg Pay for this service? Heck, no. Everybody wants to sell you a whole new compressor. I was able to put in 2 oz but my tank is nearly empty. Will pu...

Refilling system but can't turn the engine on for a while

2007 Saturn Vue 3.5L V6. LSS I just changed the timing belt and at the same time replaced the scroll valve in the compressor. Have the system vacuuming out for 2 hours while putting everything back together from the timing belt job, only to find the alternator is frozen so I can't start the car to p...

Re: 2006 Saturn Vue low on freon but can't put much in

Don't remember now, just that they were higher when I reved it, but not much more at idle.

Pressure readings in original post. Will replace the control valve and retest.

Re: 2006 Saturn Vue low on freon but can't put much in

Was able to add another 10oz with engine at 2,000 rpm and air got cold. Soon as it went to idle it was warm again. Seems like control valve issue.

2006 Saturn Vue low on freon but can't put much in

Just bought it with the a/c inop. Gauges show around 25 psi so I figure it's just a little low. Connect my drum of freon with a heater and after about 10 minutes it only takes 7 oz. Gauges around 60 low 90 high at 80 degrees. Both lines warm. What should be my next step? It has 220,000 miles so I as...
