Just documenting a factoid on AC service from replacing my compressor on the T5

My OEM compressor (1999-2000 only, part 9171703 ZEXEL DKS15CH) has a sticker which lists the oil charge as

oIL ZXL 100PG Charge 200cm3

When I went to my AC tool box, I found I only had PAG46 oil. The three major types are pAG 46 PAG 100 and PAG150

How did I get this messed up?

Its turns out ZXL 100PG is an oil made to PAG46 specs. Seriously.

Google was my friend in this case.

Thanks for the bump, i think I saw this earlier when I was looking up the code on my compressor. Valeo makes a note in their digital manual that 100pg is not PAG100
