    I know you are a big fan Willard!!!
    Correct me if I'm wrong, it is a fuel additive that helps keep the carbs clean.
    Does it also act like a fuel stabolizer or do I need to get that also???

    Thank you,
    Wally

    Wally I use just a little more then the directions call for. It is an addtive and stablizer also. It is the only product on the market that will do what its suppose to do and is oil based and can be used in any kind of engine, 2 stroke ,4 stroke , Air cooled or any other way.

    If you guys are like me use it in your weed eater and see how much easier it is to start. If you run a car or truck with a lot of miles on it Put about half can in the crank case and when the next oil change comes around just look at how much junk it will remove from inside that motor.
    Did I say I like useing seafoam.:tounge_out:

    Edward beleive me you can use only seafome and be safe.

    If you wish to use an airsol type cleaner inside the carb without running thru the gas then seafoam makes an air sol called DEEP creep that is just as good.

    Seafoam is the best! I use it in everything.

    I've had the local parts store stock it in for my use , they now sell quite a bit to other customers.

    Yes it is in my opinion Michael and it not as costly. But I don't base my like for seafoam on the cost.

    There isn't a marine supplier or auto parts around here that doesn't carry it.

    The cans aren't rusty or full of dust either:big_smile:

    Matt atabil is a good product, But its not a fuel system cleaner. I have used stabil several times over the years.

    Hey Guys, my uncle gave me a boat with a 60Hp johnson that had been sitting for over 6 years. He said it will never run!! I changed the spark plugs,tank & gas line. Fresh gas and some seafoam, fired up and smoked horribly till it burned off that old shellack off the pistons. ran a couple of tanks of good high octane gas thru 'em and she runs like new one. Oh yeah had to replace the water impeller. Hey i'm a true believer in Seafoam!!

    I use this in my motor and it says that it stabilizes on the can .I have not had a problem with my winter fuel.
