    Fuel system cleaner in 2 stroke?

    Can you put a complete fuel system cleaner in the tank of a 2-stroke? I'm worried about it breaking down or affecting the synthetic 2-stroke oil when it mixes in the engine.

    Most likely not. Don't go cheap. Pull the carbs, clean the screens and replace the fuels lines. The fuel lines is what breaks down and plugs the screens, not the fuel.

    I would not use it, it most certainly will break down the oil in your fuel. I remember one made by penzoil marine. It was perfect for two strokes, but I haven't seen that one for a long time. But like bornexp said, taking the carbs off to clean is the best way.

    The only fuel additve I would recommend is Stabil for storage or ethanol treatment if 100% gasoline isn't obtainable. Fog the motor when the machine won't be used for a few days or so. These are the only supplements that should be used besides 2 stroke oil and gasoline.

    Stay away from seafoam it will ruin gaskets.

    Any thing else is unknown territory for me IMO
