Does the current spec of a/c refrigerant smell like ammonia?


Recommended Posts

Just been out into my garage where the Evora is kept and swear I got a whiff of an ammonia type smell. Anybody know if the current spec of refrigerant used in cars is ammonia based?

Theres nowt else in the garage such a smell could come from. I’m just wondering as although it was fine when I used the car last week, the warranty runs out in a fortnight, so might need to get it checked.

Is the smell stronger near the car or being ammonia it is just everywhere?

Think it’s just everywhere in the garage. I did try a sniff test around the front of the car but didn’t seem any stronger there.

Just been out to the garage again and can’t smell it now so it’s either dispersed or I was imagining it. 🤷‍♂️
I’m using the car tomorrow so will check if the aircon is still working then.

Have you got any cats that may have been in there?

We do have cats but they’re not allowed in the garage and I’d be very surprised if a mouse could get in. The garage is well sealed and there’s no evidence of the little buggers. 
Anyhow, crisis over I think as took the car out today and, phew, all appears to be well with the aircon. I must have imagined it.

Sorry chaps, as you were.
