The R1234yf refrigerant that will be required in all new cars next year has actually been found in vehicles since 2014 when Chrysler began using it in the Dodge Demon and Jeep Trackhawk, among others. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to tell with certainty how many vehicles already have R1234yf due to the phasing in the process
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is considering a proposal that could eliminate refrigerant sales restrictions on non-ozone depleting refrigerants such as R-134a.
The new R-1234yf refrigerant is more than just a new jumble of numbers and letters on a label. For your shop, R-1234yf means several new procedures, a certification and new equipment in order to properly handle these new systems. The difference in handling and servicing between the R-1234yf and R-134a is flammability. Don’t be alarmed,
