    Yes, you can add it when you want but follow the directions on the can for the amount used. A full can of seafoam should equal about 20 gal tank.

    I have done both add it before and after one of those oh crap moments afterward with no problems. The important thing is that you are using it.

    Willard sold me on that stuff like a junky on crack after it cured some resperatory problems with an old 18 horse at a gathering. Willard saved the gathering for me.

    You can do a Google search for Sea Foam Motor Treatment.

    Sea Foam goes in everything I have, all year long!
    I had a local parts store bring in a case for me and now they sell lots of it.

    Sea fome is nothing more than a $0.89 can of alcohol,, with a HUGE market in advertisement = $7.99 for 16 oz

    in the mid 1800s it would be sold as " all purpose cure all elixer"
    salesmen clame it would cure almost ANY ailment that you may have,,

    there is no such thing as a "mechanic in a can"

    BUT , It makes folks feel good when they use it:big_smile:

    Use it before you condemn it. If you knew what it would and can do then you wouldn't run it down like that. I don't go around looking for a tech in a can I look for good usable products and I highly recommend Sea foam and I also have tried the new marine stay-bil and it does well also for this new gas we are forced to use.
    When you said this Sea foam is nothing more than a $0.89 can of alcohol,, with a HUGE market in advertisement = $7.99 for 16 oz


    You had to be talking out of the side of your mouth because you sure don't have any facts to prove otherwise.

    John Deere Technician got me started on Sea Foam many years ago, had a injector not working at idle - (had been acting up for years),put in some Sea Foam and with in 30 minutes it idled great.
    First thing I do when someone has a problem is to dump in a can.
    It's straightened up a lot of Vehicle's and Boats not running right in my area.

    http://www.seafoamsales.com/motor-treatment/index.html Sea Foam is the stuff. I swear by using this product!! My father used this for years in his tractors and combine as a fuel stabilizer and moisture inhibitor. I use it when winterizing my boat. I'll add one can to the boat before storing it during the winter. 1 can treats around 20 gals of fuel. Good stuff and a great investment for saving your engine and other components!!

    Hey Phillip!! Sounds like you're having the same experience I had this fishing season with my boat. I added some Sea Foam to my boat gas and it helps somewhat.

    question? are you using gas with 10% ethanol? if you are, please stop!! I would recommend using 90% octane, so the gas burns cleaner. That added water to make the ethanol can make the boat run rough at slow idle speeds. I don't think there's a boat engine made to run on strict ethanol enriched fuel. I made that mistake, before making the switch to better octane fuel!!
