If you are only getting 2-3 days out of a charge of refrigerant, it is likely you've got a pretty decent sized leak. Most likely the condenser, as I'm guessing that hasn't been replaced yet since it is probably the hardest part in the a/c system to access. it could also be bad o-ring seals at any juncture in the system. if it has been going in for 9 weeks and you still have a leak that bad, I would recommend specifically asking them if they are using a UV dye, and if they have used a refrigerant "sniffer" inside the weap holes where condensation runs out from the condenser... I had a similar problem in my pontiac a few summers ago, they found the leak in my condenser using their refrigerant "sniffer/detector" device by sticking it up in the weap holes, pretty expensive to repair.

on a side note, there is a stop leak that you can buy at almost any autoparts store, called "super seal". most garages will advise against it, but the guys at my local "big name" autoparts store, swear by it for the big leaks in expensive places.
