IF the A/C compressor is belt driven AND electrically run (when gasoline engine is stopped) then YES you DO need a Different kind of OIL for the system , although the refrigerant is still R-134. NO BULL bet-check with dealer/Nissan tech ,before making the wrong (and possibly very expensive) mistake.
