  1. #1
    do you need to use a different gauge manifold for each different refrigerant you work on?

    hell no, all oils are the same. i have been known to top off a system with a mixture of slick 50 and 10w30
    I don’t always drink beer, but when I do I prefer Dos-Equis. I am the most interesting man in the world. Stay thirsty my friends.

    Hey, oil's oil. It comes out of the ground.

    And when I change mine, its going back in the ground.

    Besides, as far as gauges go, for quick troubleshooting, I use a truck tire gauge. Beats having to hook up all them hoses just for a quick pressure check.
