New R-1234yF Gas
Car manufacturers will be forced to change the refrigerant used in air conditioning systems over the next few years from R-134a to R1234yf. The motor industry has decided that the refrigerant used for the past 20 years is not as environmentally friendly than a refrigerant with a lower Global Warming Potential (GWP), like R-134a.
Initially, the response was to use carbon dioxide gas (CO2) to cool the car, however this resulted in really poor results in areas where the temperature is high.
This would result in more fuel being used to cool the car – not exactly what anyone would want nor would it be very environmentally friendly.
