    They used to sell it at 4.99/ 12oz can. Its now 8.99. Even with a 10% coupon it's not much off from the price at walmart.

    An HVAC tech friend of mine just told me that thus far the 1234yf refrigerant that's going to replace all the automotive systems will not be available in anything other than bulk containers (no small 12oz cans. A google
    search proves this wrong) and it's fittings/equipment required to evac the r134a from systems won't allow you to refill with 1234yf until any/all leaks have been repaired (if any were found by the equipment). He said this is likely due to it being flammable.

    The 1234 machines suck. What took 15 minutes with a 134 machine now takes like 2 hours. LOL and the machine wants the Vin number. Then you have to add oil AFTER they system is charged using a plunger
    A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

    And in the unpredictable government category, the ruling came out this week. Time to go stock up before it ripples through retail!
