    I've got a 2008 Mercury 50 horse 2 stroke, and lately it has been giving me quite a few problems idling and hesitating before accelerating. I talked to my local Mercury mechanic and he said that it probaly needed some carb ajustments (it has 3 carbs) and may have some problems with the floats in the carbs. After telling me it wasn't covered under my warranty, he assured me it shouldn't run anymore than $300 to get her back running right:crazy:. So after reading all the good reviews you guys have given Seafoam I decided to give it a shot before giving the mechanic $300. Within 30 minutes my motor was back running the same as when I bought it. Thanks to everyone who has sugggested Seafoam in past posts, ya'll saved me quite a bit of money!

    Jason I just sea foam for the first time also. Nothing but good comes out of using it. My motor runs better than it has for a while. And the gas mileage is a lot better. My motor is a mercury classic 40 1990 model.

    Guys Seafoam not only helps get rid of water in fuel but it also treats and cleand the fuel system. A suggestion to every one who reads this. Treat with seafoam on a regular bases and install the water filter seperator and replace all fuel lines to the carbs from the tank ever 2 to 3 years.

    I have a 1969 Johnson 20 HP that runs fine wide open but doesn't want to idle. Do you think Sea Foam will help or what would you suggest?

    [/BI use seafoam on everything that has gas. Lawnmowers, chainsaws, marine and automotive applications. I'm never without it.]

    I always use SeaFoam, when winterizing my boat. I try to get most of the gas used in the gas tank before storing for the wintertime, then I'll add a can of SeaFoam to the tank. I think 1 can treats like 24 gals of fuel. It really helps the engine idle better and keeps the fuel better quality. I really like the stuff!! Great product!!
