Default Aircon Regas for <22

After 8 years the aircon is not blowing as cold as it once did, and usually a regas will sort it. So before paying the usual 40-50 I had a look around and found a nationwide chain doing it through Groupon very cheaply.

Generate a unique code here https://www.myvouchercodes.co.uk/groupon

Buy here and paste in unique code https://www.groupon.co.uk/deals/ats-...subs_group=afl

You'll get an aircon regas for 21.71 with loads of branches across the U.K.

Hope this is not against the rules, but it is a motoring forum and hopefully it helps someone out given summer is around the corner

Is that the right gas for a 2002 V70? If so, I'll be buying.

Applies to vehicles with R134A refrigerant gas only. Vehicles with R1234YF refrigerant gas are excluded

If you still got (or can Google a copy of) the owners manual it'll be in the specifications section. Otherwise there should be a sticker under the bonnet.

My 58 plate V70 is R134a according to my owners manual, so all good for me.

Edit: It seems R1234YF is the latest refrigerant for newer cars as it has a lower global warming potential than R134a. My bet is that given the age of your car it'll be R134a. http://www.ac4cars.co.uk/r1234yf.html

It's a great deal but it looks like there are only 15 branches offering the service so double check before buying.

Considering how rarely it needs doing and you're saving maybe 4 a year, I would still just use a regular regas service.
The problem is that once they have your details, Groupon mither you more than a clingy ex.

Takes 30 seconds to log into your account and stop any further emails. I do this every time I use Groupon.

Nah - that's 15 locations in just London. Must be at least 100+ centres offering this services if you click through this link

R134a was used on vehicles from the early 90s up until a year or two ago

Three or four years ago mostly. Mercedes were among the last to gas with R1234YF, because it cited safety fears from the propane based R1234YF. These do have a 'flammable' yellow hazard safety sticker under the hood should you look for it.
