Car Aircons and the LTO
If you want to register your car with the Land Transportation Office (LTO) of the Philippines, please ensure that your cair aircon uses an ozone-friendly system.[an error occurred while processing this directive]
Ozone-hostile: Freon 12 (CFC-12 or R-12)
If you car model is 1999 or newer, you should have an HFC-134a (R-134a or non-CFC) airconditioning system. Yes, this is more expensive than R-12, but if you convert to CFC-12 (R-12 or Freon), you will not be allowed to register or renew your registration with the LTO.
If you car model is 1998 or older, you can continue using CFC-12 and still be allowed to register your vehicle until the year 2012.
What's unclear, though, is what will happen if old car models (1998 and older) convert their aircon systems to R-134a. Then again, what will people do with 15-year-old vehicles?
