    Yep, I had mine regased last weekend after replacing a leaky hose.
    The air con guy commented that it took a lot of gas, much more than most cars.
    He said that is as much as a truck air conditioner takes!
    Like yours, mine is so cold now, I should be set for summer.
    I also recently replaced a few bulbs including some of the HEVAC ones, I was lucky to find some of the correct ones at my local autobarn. They had a special case of unusual bulbs and just happened to match what I needed. It's a good idea to take in the bulbs you want to replace so you can be certain you are getting the correct bulbs.
    Cheers, Pete.

    In the USA you can buy air con regas kits in supermarkets and hardware stores and shops like Walmart and Sears.

    None of the crap like here where you have to be a licenced fridgie to buy gas.

    true in the states you can buy cans of one shot , they have a shrader valve , you conect the can on the low pressure side open the tap and the gas gets sucked in ,

    1.250 Kg`s is a lot of gas a falcon takes 760+-50 grams
