A new air conditioning refrigerant, R-1234yf, is being introduced in the 2013 Cadillac XTS and upcoming ATS. R-1234yf is a new environmentally-friendly refrigerant that has a 99.7% lower Global Warming Potential (GWP) than R-134a. GWP is a value used to compare different greenhouse gases.
GE-50300 Recovery/Recycle/Recharge Machine for R-1234yf A/C Systems (certified to SAE J2843) Performs gas analysis before gas recovery or fills with recovery/fill lockout if gas is contaminated (less than 98% R-1234yf). VIN input is required. The VIN is retrieved via an integrated VCI cable connected to the vehicle’s OBD2 connector or may be manually entered. It records and prints VIN, pressures, temperature, recovered/charged amount, gas analysis results and encrypts into a warranty code.
