Daimler ups campaign against R1234yf while German firefighters demand refrigerant warning stickers


Peter, You are right to pick up on errors caused by us trying to summarise the 'backstory' too quickly. The comparison with R134a was with the toxicity - 'equal or lower risk' rather than flammability, so we have changed the references to reflect the fact that it is Toyota Deutschland which has decided not to use R1234yf. We have now also quoted directly from the SAE report into R1234yf, found at: http://www.sae.org/standardsdev/tsb/cooperative/crp_1234-4_report.pdf
