    If the gas pressure is low with proper flow of air through the evaporator then you may add.
    It the gas pressure is ok and cooling is good then don't add refrigerant, it will only add load to the compressor.

    If The Service Is Due....Charge it.......Else Keep It....

    It Will Be A Pure Refrigerant But If They Fill It Will DESI Techniques And Tools......I See No Difference On How Good Gas You Charge...It Will Mess Up...!

    So Use It Till Its Working zFine And When Needed....Refill This One After proper Vacuum....Leak Check...Compressor Oil Top-up And New Filter

    That's Vacuum Pump Which Is Needed To Be RunFor Atleast Min 30-45min........Then Oil Is Poured Separately Once Vacuum Is Done.....(He May Take Oil In Some Thing And Open Valve And Vacuum Will Suck All The Oil Into System)
