Default Freeze 12 update: Conversion Complete

I need to add just a little bit of refrigerant without doing the whole conversion to 134. Has anyone used this stuff? Is there something better to add to my R-12 system?

I can purge and flush the system if i have to, but would rather not.

Haven't priced R12 in a while, but it may be cheaper to get the R134a conversion kit.

My dad can get R-12. It costs $3500 for a 55gal drum. Wholesale.

I've got a little saved up from pumpimg down some cars in the junkyard to do mine when I find the leak, But getting that was hard even.
