I would drive across the nearest state border, buy the 134A with the gauge built in the hose, and add R134 in that state in a parking lot or something. More than enough will run you about $18.00 with the gauge hose and instructions. KMart and WalMart sell them. Artic Freeze is a good brand. Where I am the AC guys burn you a new rear end on anything they do. INSANE. That's why I bought all the equipment to do it myself and took courses. So far I have saved $ 6,000 on 3 cars replacing the entire systems myself (Compressor, orifice, Accumulator. I no longer live in fear of the AC failing in my cars or truck.
R134A is Federal EPA approved, why the no sell? Ridiculous.
Does the R134A get in the best cheese in the world somehow?
Anyway, your situation sounds like low R134 but YOU NEED TO CHECK WITH THE GAUGE before adding. ALL AC systems will leak a little over time. While I don't really like the stuff, the leak sealer in the R134 you will buy should fix a small leak or two. Read the instructions and follow them.
And I thought California was bad because they said they MIGHT ban consumers from buying R134.
This will explain it.
