The system needs to be flushed to get all of the oil out of it as the oil required for R134 is not compatible with R12.

Re: 134a back to R12

I'm just curious why you would want to convert back to R12?

Doesnt escape the system like 134a, supposed to cool better in A6 compressors and the r 12 was free from a friend who had it. Most people on this site said go r12.
