I would recommend using ES12a. http://autorefrigerants.com/ Lower head
pressures than 134a, which means longer compressor life. ES12a is
hydrocarbon based. Has much closer pressure temp curves to R12 than R134a.
Has a higher flash point than 134a. If you want to change to 134a (from R12)
then you need to change to ester based refrigeration oil, pull a vacuum on
the system to eliminate moisture and then charge. For ES12a they recommend
not charging under a vacuum as this leads to overcharging.
