I'm not kidding, this testarossa came in for a clutch bleed and aircon gas. A while you wait job....

Clutch master cyl is toast... And tx valve blocked....

I think this started the A/c talk in here. Dunno why, really.

Interesting.

If it IS. Hychill, who here will change their tune regarding its' safety and use?

Wouldnt be the first Hychill fire in Australia. A truck in the mines in WA had one using minus 30.

Why would a truck use that?

I love it. Made a huge difference to the performance of my air conditioning and I believe the risk is exaggerated by those who might have an agenda. Then again, I ride a motorbike just about every day, so that shows what I think of risk.

What do you think the agenda might be?

134a can produce perfectly acceptable vent temps, all be it not as low, maybe, than hychill...

What's the problem?

Many people end up comparing a FAULTY OR UNDER PERFORMING 134a system, to a freshly serviced and gassed hychill, and are mis led by the results hychill apparently gave.

When in fact, 134a can work completely satisfactorily.

I've never been satisfied with 134a, but I am (comparatively) with hychill.....and going by the increase in the number of people I hear about using it, I'm not the only one.

Don't ignore the fact that with 134a, ALL the components of the a/c are running at much higher pressures than they were ever designed to. With Hychill, they don't. Maybe you don't see a problem with that, but I do.

So, you don't like hychill because you think it's a fire risk, but I like it because it's cheaper, doesn't harm the environment at all EVER, works more effectively and the system runs at lower pressure.

It's a simple risk assessment, and IMO, the benefits outweigh the risks many times over.

Its what they used when they replaced the original refrigerant, maybe it runs cooler, plus they could buy it direct from Hychill and install it themself.

But the system has a hi/low pressure switch to control max and min pressures.

I've always had good results with no need to change the pressure switch, proving the existing max pressure is never ever exceeded.

Ever.

I've also not witnessed excessive compressor cycling on/off, or fan cycling. Or ANY other operational problems.

Sure, maybe it needs to be topped up every 18 months to 3 years. But so what, that's all they said R12 was good for anyway, even though it was good for longer.

Hychill may be cheaper (we're talking pocket change either way) and a little colder (not massively), but the actually proven, and perceived risks are too high for me to advocate.

Ok. Personally, I wouldn't bother with it in a system where the gas it was designed to run with was currently available.

Oh...and what actually happened to cause the fire?
