Regasing Air Con With R134

Has anyone seen a regasing kit to charge air con with r134.
My system was recharged with r134 two years ago but the gas is low and it needs a top up.I dont want to pay $150 for few oz's of gas at a garage.I have recharged with R12 in the past with no problems.Some one must sell cans of the stuff but who!

I got mine regassed and also had a new receiver drier and O rings put on, it cost me $150 for that but on the invoice the gas cost $14 so it shouldn't cost much just to regas the system

no you can't buy cans of it dude.
You can put LPG in it if you like as that is supposed to be the BEST thing for air con it's just dangerous. VERY dangerous.
I got mine regased and pressure checked for $44.
It most likly cost you 150 before because you had to upgrade to 134a from the old stuff.
In which case they would have charged you for a new filter and environmental for the removal of the old CFC gas.
if you need it again after 2 years you either didn't look after the system or you have another leak.

I would have thought that if it needed to be regassed it would cost a bit because the gas has gotten out somewhere and that would need to be fixed
