Another interesting thing about re-gas costs is that the machines vacuum out to retrieve the gas out of your system before refilling, as it is so expensive.

But this then means someone regassing who's had a leak and at 0% will be using 100% new gas, compared to someone who just has a regas done as part of a service who may have 70% gas and only using 30%. Why should it cost the same for both these people?

If anyone is thinking of paying for their re-gas then try Westway Nissan. They quoted me £79 and this includes a decontamination of the system. They have confirmed this is for the new style gas (I had 3 different people confirm it because I didn't believe them !).

I got ripped off for £264 by a local dealer and nearly a month later I am STILL trying to get my money back despite Nissan customer services saying I will get a refund.
It's listed on their website as a fixed price £79...

Although as mentioned in my previous post, if this is just part of a regular service of the air con every 2 years, then most of your gas should still be present and so not much of the expensive new style gas would be needed.

Thanks for all your comments, I went to West Way Nissan in Redbridge, Southampton, all done for just £79 and a free wash and valet! Very happy with this :D :D

Just to let you all know that there was a leak in the condenser and the work was done under the extended warranty. So Nissan did me proud in the end.

Hi, posting in 2018. I've just established this rather delightful expense after I'd booked my vehicle in to be refilled in ATS. They are offering to do it for £189 much to my shock but I've soon realised this is much cheaper than other specialist dealers/garages. Anybody else had luck since sourcing a cheaper alternative? Thanks
