[DML] Re: AC Question - 3 of them with a little surrounding information.



I've heard this before,
     I can't prove it, though.  I've had Freeze-12 in my system for 
a few years now.  I know I have a slow leak, but I had it with R-12 
so I know it isn't caused by the Freeze-12.  So far everything still 
works just as it should.  I am, however, planning to totally go over 
my A/C system this winter so I won't have anymore leaks.
