I believe that the connectors for R134a and R1234yf are different, so unless converters are used, it should be difficult to refill with the wrong refrigerant.

An article below, but the charging systems (connectors) should be different so you cannot add the new stuff as they are highly flammable and mustn't be mixed.

Yes, that's what I mentioned earlier and a good thing too as I can just see the outbreak of 'spontaneous combustions' all over the Country! :roll: :-D
