We call it ER12 here and in my experience it is the only stuff to use in R12 systems. It runs far cooler than R134A and is perfectly safe. I have read tests where they couldn't get it to explode in a completely sealed cabin. It worked beautifully in my 75 and after sealing up the blower motor to condenser interface with high density foam, our 164 blew colder than any 164 ever did, even new.
