    Reason gas is lost is that there is a compressor on the system and the
    compressor has a driveshaft which exits the compressor casing, is sealed to
    that casing using the most cost effective means available. The seal being
    imperfect leaks, hence the need to top-up the system every now and again.

    Audi must feel that 2 years is the correct period of time to avoid
    malfunctioning of the system, at the same time avoiding too much noise about
    an overly demanding maintenance regime for the equipment but it must be
    realised that there is no hard and fast period, with some systems not
    achieving two years and others going considerably longer.

    The aircon in my RS6 was certainly becoming noticeably less effective
    after three years. A regas during the service visit has certainly
    restored the cooling.

    The ECON light indicates that the AC compressor is off. Even if you have
    the heat set to AUTO The AC is off if the ambient temperature is lower
    than 37F degrees.

    I thought it means that the A/C has a fault. What does the A4 manual
    say?
