    Seafoam.... Maybe Im Crazy... But....

    ..... I used some for the first time today.... and maybe its just my mind wanting to think it made a difference... but man did it run good today. I put a half a can per the instructions, in the a full tank of gas today, and let it slosh around in there during the trip to the lake... and it sure seemed like it helped! Engine ran smoother, stopped and started fine....... Just wanted to pass that along in case someone was debating on trying it out...

    Just be careful about using too much. That stuff is potent and will rot rubber seals in the carbs/fuel system.

    I added a can to the gas tank of my Corvette, when I was concerned that the fuel level sending unit was 'stuck'. I also seemed to 'feel' some noticeable improvement...and my fuel guage is working fine!

    I wouldn't, however, EVER add this to the crankcase...under any circumstances.

    I just always go by the rule of "if ya need an additive, you have a problem"

    If it were me, i'd get in there and check the entire fuel system, carbs and all before something happens.


    One thing some guys dont think of is that when you put an additive in the fuel, it replaces fuel volume and CAN (not always) lean out the engine. If it is jetted close a small amount of additive may cause some engine damage.

    Just my .02

    I've seen janitor in a drum but never mechanic in a can.
