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


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