It is probably a bottle of R12 Freon refrigerant and cannot be mixed with newer types. It was banned in USA in 1996 due to environmental impact.

It is for sure R12 and predates the 1996 ban. I understand that a certified technician may possess it and use it for its original intended purpose. You may also possess it if acting as a wholesaler and intend to convey it only a certified technician. Lots R12 still around on Ebay to be bought at about $15 to $20 a pound. This is free to any Whitby/Brewer owner who can arrange transport. I believe that R12 is in most of the pre 96 boats. I don't need it as I am changing over to a new system for both cooler and deep freeze. I will weigh the "bottle" and post it later. If your cooling uses R12 the deal doesn't get any cheaper than this!

That offering did not last long. It was a 30lb unopened bottle of R12.refrigerant that I am told cannot be imported into the USA even tho it is legal to possess it there. A local licensed technician looked at it like mannah from heaven and was last seen disappearing in a cloud of snow, headed for Toronto !
