Don't. Real Freon ("R-12") is very expensive as it is no longer manufactured or imported into the USA. Take your vehicle to a licensed auto AC shop and have your system converted to R-134a. Also have any other service it needs done now. You can buy a kit that has a can of R-134a and a gauge and hose fittings to recharge your systems, including the Toyota after it is converted to R-134a.
