Description

Now that the production of Freon is banned, tempting new car coolants are flooding the market. One product is not only illegal for use in cars in Florida as well as in a dozen other states, but it's also explosive. Yet when WPTV went undercover, they found the product being used and sold across Palm Beach County. WPTV was even able to buy several cases. Posing as buyers, reporters traced the product all the way to Tennessee where a salesman admitted to being the "exclusive" Florida distributor. (October 31, November 1, 1996)
