    Build a man a fire, and he's warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he's warm the rest of his life!

    From the ODP course I took 2 months ago at the HRAI head quarters. The teacher told us. Some brown guy kept saying " I can buy 134a from Canadian tire. Teacher says it's propane

    ethyl alcohol

    alcohol with lead.

    used to be pretty common to add to an r22 low temp box.

    Although you posted in a 8 month old thread , in the Toronto area there is a TECH school called George Brown , lot of people refer to anyone from there as a BROWN guy , same way a FORD fan is called a FORD guy or CHEV fan a CHEVY GUY , I am sure there was no racial intention from the poster.

    I didn't mean the guy who said "some brown guy", I was talking bout the one who seemed to have a problem with that. Like Control man said, why else would someone post to a thread that's 8 months old?

    The "rubbing alcohol" additives became popular back on the days when the refrigerant was loaded with moisture, Brands like "Thawzone" made millions selling the magic solution to metering device freezing, remember that 30 or 40 years ago a vacuum pump was a luxury and a micron gauges....whats that?. things have evolved a great deal, back then a good refrigeration mechanic knew how to rewind a motor or a transformer, they knew how to get things done with very little.
