Re: [DML] Re: recharging my R-12 system with R-416A (another update on #2613)

Thanks, David. I guess since I have a can of FR-12 I might as well give 
this a shot. Even though I don't have a gauge to see how much charge 
there is, I guess I can have my girlfriend sit in the car with a 
thermometer in the vent to yell at me when it starts cooling again. LOL

Now where did I put those safety goggles......? ;-)
