    I don't know if it is just a Kansas thing, but people in the trade around here will make fun of ya for calling it FREON! Freon is a DuPont trade name. Just like people call all hook and look fasteners..VELCRO, or all adjustable wrenches CRESCENT wrenches. Just splitting hairs here!

    Besides, all homeowners call it freon, tradesman call it Refrigerant!

    Giving the OP the benefit of doubt, he might actually have a DuPont cylinder that still says FREON on it.
