My A/C is very nice but not c-o-l-d as others and as I would like it to be.

I have the A/C tool but now I think I need a can of freon. Where's the best place to get a can or two without having to loose an arm or leg for it.

lol its illegal here to refill the R-12, but theres always shops that will refill it, we gotta get it converted to R-134 to get it legally refilled, I havnet heard very good stuff about recharging the system, it usually leaks out, and it might only last, for a bit, you can get the freon from walmart, or proabbly any auto part store

i don't think it's illegal to fill, just discontinued. My dad's '85 chevy van didn't have a problem to find a fill, and it was the old r12

walmart does NOT sell R-12. You have to be EPA certified AND registered to sell r-12.
They do sell r-134a.
