Don't Sweat It.
includes 1lb refrigerant plus dye
Why do I need refrigerant?
There are two causes of refrigerant leaks: age and moisture. While much of your automotive air conditioning system is made of metal, rubber is also used throughout the parts. The problem is that with exposure to heat and moisture, rubber degrades over time. As wear and tear accelerates, the parts will fail. Something as simple as a degraded O-ring can cause you to loose refrigerant very quickly.
What is the dye for?
By law, it is illegal to continuously recharge an air conditioning system with leaks. It hurts the environment and is harmful to the ozone. If you have a leak in your A/C system, one possibility is that moisture has entered the lines. Moisture in an automotive A/C system is very bad, because it mixes with leftover refrigerant and creates an acid. A unique dye repair shops have will glow a bright neon green, which can be seen only with special eyewear. Once we begin to see that oozing dye, we can target the specific part that is at fault and repair it.
