      So the working evaporator temp at 55 psi is 51°F. At 275 psi the condenser working temp is 159°F. Based on your chart, and those values...

      Engine was a little heat soaked from idling per my last post but just went out and got exactly 55PSI / 275PSI.

      I didn't have time today to do any serious testing or research; I will continue to report data as I collect more. However, I did buy 8...

      I completely agree. It is baffling. The high side can drop over 100 psi and the low side goes down by 5-10psi max. Vents get a little...
