This is most likely true ,have had it done myself on a car that had only done 17,000 miles,must have been on all the time! There are cheaper places it would pay to get some quotes.My neighbour had a mobile van do his .only around £40.

£10 sounds like a bargain!

I was going to say you can buy a gas canister from halfords to do it yourself but I think that's £20+

You could buy a re charge kit from Halfrauds, which costs £40, but I would only use that if you know the air con is a bit low.
Kwik-Fit "seems"the best option as they will vacum the system empty and then re charge to the correct setting according Fords details.
