    Air con gas

    Anyone know what gas is used for the air con as I think mine needes topping up.

    My friend works in the air con business but with buildings and said if I can get the name etc of the gas he will recharge my system, as they are all the same in mechanics, just use different gases.

    Here's an interesting thought - phone a couple of dealers and see if the come up with the same answer (even if it's just 'it all comes out of a big bottle with a/c gas on it in German' (off course))!

    Cheers for that.

    Was not expecting anyone to know this, so it was a bit of a wild card.
