You should purge the yellow supply hose from can to manifold every time you connect a can.
It doesn't take much and I didn't waste but a fraction of an ounce each time.

Our GS's take 19.4-22.9 ounces of 134a refrigerant.

as i mentioned, with the YJ 4 valve manifold there is zero 134a waste, its also an EPA issue to vent 134a. with a 4 valve manifold you close off all the valves, switch cans, open vac and ref valves, vac it down, close vac line, open can, open lo side and fill, etc. purging can still be done, but no need.

and no, i dont have a 26oz can, i have a 12 & 14.
