Recharging with cans W/ or W/O Oil?

efxengr on Sun July 22, 2012 10:10 PM User is offline

Year: 2001
Make: Hyundai
Model: Elantra
Engine Size: 2.0
Refrigerant Type: 134a
Ambient Temp: 84F

After replacing combo condenser/drier, TXV, and o-rings & gaskets, and flushing hoses and evaporator, and...after pumping down and pressure testing I will be recharging with 134a from a can(s). My question is, after adding the amount of oil recommended from TSB (directly to the condenser before closing up) what type of can product to use...with or without oil? I will be steering clear of any other additives, sealers, scavengers, boosters, etc. I will be weighing during the refill so I will need to correct for oil content to meet the seperate refrigerant quantity spec.

I will be using gauge manifold and can tap feature. I will also be injecting UV die seperately but can include a can with UV die already in it if that is the only additive.
