Sorry if that's no help. Cheers 975g on mine! Look on the various "Do not touch a/c system idiot!" multilingual stickers on the fenders, you'll see. Standard procedure is 80% R134a. However, you do need to use a pressure gauge and some other stuff to do the retrofit. Also, there is a reason the R12 leaked out in place #1. So find out what has happened, a leaky hose, dried up seals etc. Fix it proper and do a correct R134a retrofit and the aircon will be nice and cold (not as cold as new but more than fine) and you will enjoy it for a good long time. However, if you go to Wal Mart and buy a $40 "AC retrofit kit" which has a can of "sealant" goo plus some R134a or a mix of propane/butane etc will only last a short time and not work very well at all. It's a half-assed solution.
