  • I was concerned that the correct amount of refrigerant had not been put into my cars aircon system as it has rear aircon and takes 850 but the receipt said 500 was put in. I emailed to query this but was told that it says 500 as standard on the printouts regardless of what was put in. I was somewhat satisfied with this explanation but I will cautiously await to see how it performs longer term. I would still use formula one.
