They now have to use a more environmentally friendly refrigerant that has a GWP (global warming potential) lower than 150 (R134A is 1,400). The new Solstice R1234YF has a GWP of 4 so is much better for the environment should it escape into the atmosphere. National Refrigerants are the leading authorised re-packer and distributor of YF refrigerants.Available Nationwide and 100% genuine guaranteed AHRI-70002016 specification.

Engine cooling parts include radiators, oil coolers, heater cores, condensers, intercoolers, cooling fans and cabin blower fans. Denso spokesman Martin Pring says it's essential to use the right compressor oil: "Primarily to lubricate moving parts, i.e. the compressor and the expansion valve needle. It also enables heat to escape from the compressor. Insufficient lubrication due to universal oil is the second most frequent reason for DENSO A/C compressor damage and failure."
