|coldbear||Sea Foam is a maintaience item that should be added to your gas and oil twice a year, provided you operate your vehichle 15,000. miles a year.It works. I'm tighter than a frogs ass and wouldn't be buying it and using the stuff if it didn't work.|

But what problems are you users curing with the Seafoam product?
"I was having ____ problem. and Seafoam stopped _____ symptoms.
Not having it cause noticeable problems by having the motor ingest it slow enough, is not much of a reason.
(nor is the claimed advertising on any product, snake oil cures everything)

To whom it concerns ?
I have a coffee buddy that drives a tanker unloading gasoline to many stations. He honestly said that the gasoline being refined today is the dirtiest that he has hauled in 18 yrs. of service.These companies are not putting the right amount of detergents in the gas because of the expenses. Now maybe you should read the SF can or better yet call the 800 # on the back of the can and talk to the reps. I've had 6-7 cars, a fleet of HVAC trucks and several cat equipped units and NEVER had the first converter killed by SF. Hell I couldn't afford to put Coleman camp fuel in my fleet anyway. If you feel threatened by the use of the product, then don't buy it. jmo.

|Squareleft||you wouldn't believe how many service depts at dealerships use this in cars. A LOT. I have never had an issue with seafoam. I think it is a good product and never had any issues with putting it in my oil or gas. no different than doing a top engine clean if you suck it through your manifold, but its how you do it, placement, as well as the speed goes in to your engine, otherwise you will super heat your cats and eventually cause damage.|

I've used this stuff for 20 yrs. and believe in it. I put 90%in the tank,10% in the oil 100 miles before oil change. DO NOT run this additive in the oil more than a hundred miles as this stuff is a super detergent and it cleans everything extremely well. That's why it cost 8-10 bucks a can. I use one can per 3000. mile oil changes.168,000. miles and have never replaced a sensor. Honestly!

|Mitch1989||I usually throw a can in my gas tank. And throw a can in my oil about 500 miles before my oil change. I've done it through the vacuum lines too.|

|TerryB||I just went through a full tank with seafoam. I would have done the vacumn lines, but I didn't have anyone to work the throttle for me. I should be doing my fuel filter later today. My MPG went from 28 to 25. From what I searched, that is expected. It should go back up after fill up or two. I haven't noticed any difference yet besides the mileage drop.|

I always use to have good things to say about sea foam but I'm not to fond of it now. I will never use it in my focus, I have used it in my 89 Bronco ii because I wanted to clean somethings up and get better gas mileage, but most of the time there is no need to use it, and I've heard a lot of horror stories about the stuff

If you were about to store your carburated boat for the winter, maybe.
I sure as hell wouldn't run it through an EFI motor with catalytic converter.
Read the MSDS, see what you are about to burn through your motor and cat.
40-60% pale oil
10-20% isopropyl alcohol
What exactly are you trying to fix or cure by dumping a mixture of light oil, Coleman camping fuel, and rubbing alcohol into your motor?
