Are you ready for HFO-1234yf?
Author: Dave Cappert
The introduction of HFO-1234yf refrigerant in some models this year will generate a ripple effect into the entire landscape of A/C service. The Cadillac XTS will be the first car in the U.S. with a factory fill of HFO-1234yf. Others will gradually enter the vehicle fleet as manufacturers make the transition to this new refrigerant. Working on these systems will be governed by new regulations due later in 2012, when pending revisions from EPA for Section 609 programs will address servicing vehicles with HFO-1234yf systems.

I spent part of my early career as a Service Manager at a Fiat dealership (yes, I was a Fiat Service Manager named Tony—I have heard it all). There, I learned the value of promoting the expertise my shop and my technicians provided in solving problems.
