Freon (R12) is a refrigerant that started being phased out in the early 90s. The last I knew it was selling for about $50.00 a pound and a car usually takes about 2 pounds. So a simple evacuation, then recharge may cost about $150.00. This however probably wouldn't include diagnosis of the reason why it needs recharging in the first place (ie a leak) so replacing alone will most likely lead to another trip to the garage to charge it and actually find the leak. If the car is 1992 or newer it will almost definitely be equipt with the new refrigerant R134 which costs about $18.00 a pound making the repair that much cheaper. Also if it is equipt with an R12 system the best recomendation is to have it retrofitted to R134. A simple and fairly inexpensive job.

Is it feasible and approximately how much will it cost to replace the air conditioner in my '91 Miata with a unit that does not use freon?

You can replace freon depending on how much you need for as little as twenty dollars. It more than likely will require labor which will add at least 75 dollars to this price.

First off it contains no Freon. The refrigrant used is not Freon R12 but is R134a. Freon is extremely expensive but R134a is around $7 per 12 ounce can.

Depends on how extensive a conversion you want to do. If you want to a complete conversion and replace just about everything, the cost will be in the thousands. For considerably less, you can replace the refrigerant oil, replace the hose fittings, and replace the metering device. Another alternative is to switch to R414b, which is claimed to be able to replace (read: replace, not be blended with) R12 without a need for changing oil or components.

Depends whats broken. But, if you replace the pump, around $ 300.00 to $ 500.00, depends what kind of car, plus the freon, around $ 120.00 to $ 150.00. So it could cost some $$$$$$$

Depends on location and on what brand of unit you have. Also depends if the unit lost its freon during its failure. Cost with out freon is 1300-1600 with freon R-22 now that is has doubled in price would be 1700-2300.
