Deal Details

The weekly Big Lots ad has R134A Freon in 12 oz cans for $5. The Big Lots in Omaha is 10 miles away so I took the ad which came in Sundays paper to Oreillys Auto Parts and they matched the price. Current price @ Oreillys, Auto Zone and American Auto Parts is $10 for the same thing.

it's usually a story about how only 3 plants made it, and one of 'em blew up...I've heard that several times about different products including freon and antifreeze.

not threadcrapping, but I think you can buy it cheaper at wholesale clubs if you buy it by the case.

Not to nitpick, but 134a refrigerant is not called "freon", it's just called 134a or Trifluoroethane. R12 refrigerant's retail name is freon...

Still thumbs up for the good deal, and feedback given. Smilie

Just to nitpick, I think it's actually trichloroflouromethane. But, that's without looking it up because I'm to lazy to look it up just to nitpick. And, that will give someone who has the time to look it up a chance to nitpick me.

Anyway, the new stuff is R134, not freon. Freon was phased out in about, 1992 for automotive use. And, most likely, a repair shop will refill your car with R134 anyway because it turned out to be a much better substitute for freon than everybody expected.

Just a small nitpick of the nitpick.... Freon is Dupont's trademarked brand name for dichlorodifluoromethane, which is better known as R-12. Also, the chemical name for R-134a is tetrafluoroethane, not trifluoroethane, which is the chemical name for R-143(a or b).

In any event, reps to the OP since I need some tetrafluoroethane for my 06 Charger and this is the best price I have seen in a while.

Class dismissed...

actually this is some of the most polite nitpicking i've seen. In the Age Of Obama, if you give correct information, people complain.

I think my car's air is not too cold and may be low again on this R134. last time the mechanic charged me over $80 to just re-fill it. I would like to save some $$. How do I do it myself? Do I need special equiptment to do it? Does it come with some kind of hose I can just attached the can to my air's inlet? My car's air need 100 lb psi, will this have high enough pressure to fill it?

The only way to properly do it is with a vacuum pull but loading up with cans should give decent cold air probably not ice cold <-- anyone wanna nitpick
