Freon is a brand name of refrigerant. Your Toyota takes R134a refrigerant.
"Freon" is DuPont's trademark for its CFC refrigerant products. R-22 is one of those refrigerants, so R-22 and Freon-22 are the same refrigerant.
None, the refrigerant is R134a not Freon which is R12.
The original refrigerant installed at the factory in 1973 was R12 (Freon). If it has not been converted to R134a, I suggest you convert it now, if it is leaking and needs repair. R12 is no longer in production and the dwindling supply is very expensive. Much cheaper to convert it to R134a.
