    A3 8L Air Con Fluid Capacity?

    Hey guys, so ive finaly fitted a new re-charge valve and lost all my Air con fluid. How much does it take from empty? If i buy a ez chill r134a air conditioning recharge with trigger dispenser Will it be enough to re fill it or are these only used as "Top ups"?

    Nothing useful to add except I'm in the same boat after an engine change and was wondering exactly the same thing!

    On the basis I've seen posts saying 1 can is enough to top up 2-3 cars I'm guessing 2 cans might be needed?

    Hello Raptor!

    There must be a local aircon place that can do a full re gas for £30/35 surely? That's how much it is in Brum at an aircon specialist. I've purchased a can of ez chill before, and it was great to recharge three different cars for the price, unsure if one will do a full re gas though?

    Everywhere around me seems to want £60+ for a recharge, haven't checked refill pricing!

    Hey bobo, i mean jojo

    Yeah ive deciede to take it in to the garage today for a full re-charge.. Costing me £49 so will see if its worth the hasle now..lol

    Cant really go on the EZ recharge description as if it says can do 2-3 cars then that will depend on how full or empty the cars are.
