    Bringing R134a recharge kits across border

    Does anyone know if there are any restrictions on bringing a few recharge cans of R134A across the border?
    Only thing sold here is that crappy redtek stuff which is hydrocarbon based(propane/butane).
    I suspect there's a leak so I'm not too keen on putting flammable stuff in.

    The AC on my TJ has been slowly dying over the last year and finally shit the bed today so it's probably been a slow leak.
    I'm going on a trip in 2 weeks and just looking for something get by for the duration of the trip, I'll diagnose and do a proper fix afterwards.

    No. You may import it as R-134A is not a controlled ozone depleting substances as per Environment Canada.

    Interesting info, so when crossing do you have to posses a ODP card or how does that work?
