I really don't know how they get away with these DIY kits.The gas can be pretty nasty stuff,and if you've had a face full of it like I have in the past,you'd probably not want to go anywhere near it!

The older type of gas was potentially dangerous to certain people,and the newer stuff is supposed to be safe,but after breathing some in(not recommended!) I suffered from a nasty sore throat,painfull sinuses and slight breathing difficulties,although obviously not life threatening,it was just uncomfortable.It might be down to the amount I smoke mind!!!.

The DIY kits can do more harm than good to the aircon system it's self too......

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
