Did you guys ride out the storm OK?

Charge the system with R12 if you can. I've been using it lately & I've gotten mid 40 vent temps from stock Spider A/C systems. Those were Motronic cars; so the dual fans helped.

We did just fine during the storm. Never lost power for more than a minute at a time. Sadly I got very little car work done during the time off.

I have been charging all my cars with ES-12 for several years now and can get 40s at the vents. I don't do anything with 134a. In the spider I could get down to the high 30s but there is so little air flow in an S3a spider that is really does not help much.
