    It gets hot & humid here for maybe 2-4 weeks a year. I rarely ever use it. I've only had it in 3 out of about 25 cars. (I had to test to make sure it still worked when I advertised them for sale!)

    But I never sit in city traffic, either. Plus everybody's got different "internal thermostats".

    Yeah it seems like it's either winter or mosquito season. It was 28C (82F)here one or 2 days already, then the next morning it was 0C (32F) and had to scrape the windows.

    Edit: I think you're probably right, kinda.
    Yes, it's tetrafluoroethane hydrofluorocarbon, R134a, or Dupont Suva. I used to work for them, seems to me it was invented around 30 years ago.
