Like it or Not, Automotive Refrigerant is Changing Again

Automotive Refrigerant is changing, What you need to know.

Today, we are more focused on making cars environmentally-friendly than ever before. With the introduction and success of hybrid, electric, propane and natural gas vehicles, manufacturers are scrambling to discover and implement the next way to lower environmental impact. The last time there was a major refrigerant change was in the 90s, when we switched from an R-12 refrigerant to an R-134a. Now, within the past few years, Europe has focused on car refrigerants that are even more benign due to the lowered likelihood that emissions will deplete the ozone. The United States recently adopted this idea, using R-1234yf in cars like Cadillacs, Chrysler 300, Dodge Chargers and more, instead of the 90s R-134a version.

Propane automotive conversions and refueling

Propane/autogas conversions and refueling

Bunge’s Tire and Auto is excited to announce that we now offer propane conversions for vehicles, and a propane refueling station. Bunge’s is the first auto repair shop in the Elgin area to offer these new services.

You may have a lot of great questions about propane conversion and autogas refueling. When propane is used to fuel an automobile it is called “autogas”. We’ve created a question and answer section on our website to help you learn about our new service.
