COLD HARD FACT: 1.2 Million Australian Cars Use HC Refrigerants!
A study commissioned by the Australian Government reveals that approximately 8% of passenger and light commercial vehicles in Australia use hydrocarbons refrigerants for their air conditioning system. Therefore out of the 14.6 million vehicle population, there are approximately 1.2 million vehicles using hydrocarbons.

But hopefully now that the Australian Government have released these fi gures, it may settle even the toughest critics. After all when you combine 20 plus years and over 1.2 million current vehicles on the road with hydrocarbons, the fi gures tell an amazing story.
