Cost of R-12?
« on: September 03, 2008, 04:07:23 PM »
What is the current market rate ($ per pound) of R-12 refrigerant?  Rough approximations are acceptable!
Thanks,
Pat

You can find it on E-Bay for around $20 per one pound can.  There's still
plenty available.  Mike

Most cans of R-12 freon are 12 oz. cans.

Local shops around here charge $60/lb for charging your system.

Instead of R-12, which I heard can cost upwards of to about $100 a pound, try a product called Freeze 12.  It's a refrigerant, that is one molecule differnt the freon, and is legal and cost about $10 a pound.  I put it in my '85 Eldo, and it works terrific, in fact it appears to be even colder the freon.
