Yes you can, however the connectors are different and you will have to get the retrofit set unless you have the adapters. R134-A took the place of R-12, so the molecules and makeup are almost the same. I am an A/C and Refrigeration service technician, so im not just talking from heresay

You can use the new R134 but you will need to buy a retrofit kit. These are available from most Auto Parts houses. Just check in your local town and see who is the least expensive.
