After researching the threads, I ordered the recharge kit from Enviro-Safe, but haven't recharged an AC system in 15 years. There are no instructions included. Can you point me to some instructions that would apply to my '91 300SE?EnviroSafe refrigerant is incredible!! I have used it in every Mercedes I have owned due to its superior performance and low operating pressures. Not only does it out perform 134a significantly, it saves the a/c system by operating at pressures fractionally those of 134a.
I have used EnviroSafe in both R12 and 134a systems and couldn't be happier. This past weekend I charged the system in my 1999 E320 wagon with it. To say it out performs 134a is an enormous understatement.
I live in south Florida and the heat index has been over 100F. After charging the system with EnviroSafe I can sit dead stopped at idle on black asphalt and have the a/c set at 72 and it blows cold enough to run the seat heaters. Outside temp shows 92 and the heat index is well over 100.
It took two of the small cans to charge my system. This is the eleventh car I have switched to EnviroSafe and have NEVER had to revisit/repair any part of the a/c system after the conversion. No extra parts needed. No "retro-fitting". Just vacuum the system, charge and go. One car I owned had EnviroSafe in the a/c system for approximately 7 years (before I sold the car) without any issue.
$20-25 per can is insanely expensive. A complete kit is in the $25 range with everything needed to fully charge one car, including charging hose/hi-low fittings, oil and dye. Envirosafe's home page is: Environmentally Friendly Refrigerant and Automotive Fluid Products - Enviro-Safe, Inc
In June the EPA began enforcement actions against Enviro-Safe Refrigerants, Inc., of Pekin, Illinois, for producing and selling a product called ES 22a in violations of the Clean Air Act.
Hi all,I've used the Envirosafe kit and like the people on the first few pages I'm extremely happy with it
Yes it's propane blended at a premium price compared to using bbq propane , but there's no need to create your own adapters and fittings . For $34 You get a complete kit from enviro safe that I installed in 15 minutes . Included leak stop and oil charge. Simple and easy and working for 3+ years now
If it was any harder I probably wouldn't have done it , so fabbing my own propane adapters wasn't going to happen . I highly recommend enviro safe
I am interested in switching over to Envirosafe. I have a 1990 420SEL. And I live in Tampa so you can imagine the heat.It took two of the small cans to charge my system. This is the eleventh car I have switched to EnviroSafe [/url]
