Newer vehicles use R134a refrigerant...it is much less harmful to the environment. Understand that the AC won't get very cold until you are moving air through the radiator/condenser. Don't expect to sit at idle and create a snow storm. R134a is not as efficient at heat transfer as the older refrigerants, therefore, it takes more airflow over the condenser to produce the desired cooling.
