I imagine the R134 is the same but the only cans of it I've been able to find have leak stoppers in them.  I wanted to be sure this shouldn't cause a problem in a frig, prior to evacuating/charging mine, per your previous advice.

Thanks.

I wouldnt do it. Automobile 134A is not as pure (dry) as Reffer grade. Also you said it had leak stop in it. That will plug up the dryer for sure:shock:

You lost me there:  Cars have driers also, and they don't plug up with this stuff.  :?

Had a screen and orifice plug up in a dodge van and a screen plug in an astro van.  The strainer in a domestic reffer unit is a molecular sieve, very fine. Never tried any leak stop in a reffer unit. But my bet is its not a good idea! I feel the only thing that should be in a system is oil and freon. JMHO....:shock:

I got a can of Dupont Suva 134a (without any leak stopper, dye, etc.) from the auto parts store.  Just for my own edification called Dupont, who told me there is no difference in 134a for auto vs HVAC vs refrigerators. 

Will see now how it goes!  ;)
