    Add about a half can to the next three tanks of fuel and it should clean every thing out good. Then add it about once a month. With todays fuel it can get cloged real fast.

    I used Sea Foam once on a 80 HP Merc. That had set in storage for 10 years ran like a top for many hours before I sold it, Have never been able to find it again, any ideas where to get it?

    Good mornin' Bubba, all the NAPA stores around here carry it. It's alot cheaper there than @ West Marine etc.

    I'm with you Bubba, although most people think it is only for gas/marine use. It works great on diesels as well. I don't know for a fact but I'm willin' to bet that it should help out with the lack of lubricity in todays ULSD.

    That's roughly what I pay for it here. I just put a can in a '98 Dodge van a few minutes ago. I paid $6.00 @ NAPA.

    I put 1/2 of the can thru the Vacuum hose & the other 1/2 thru my injection cleaning machine. You can't even feel or hear it run:big_smile:

    The us military spent several thousands of dollars developing that stuff and I have heard from tank drivers that were in WWII that if they hadn't had that stuff in Europe and Africa that their tanks would have almost come to a stand still.

    It wasn't until the late fifties that the general public could purchase it.

    How many have heard their power steering pump whine, Especially on the older model trucks and cars. Add about an ounce to your pump fluid and in a couple days it will be quite as a mouse.

    Did I say I like Seafoam?:tounge_out:

    How much do you add to a tank of gas?
    I have a 1985 dodge van I would like to try it in.

    The amount is on the can and I can't remember the specifics but I would fill it up and dump the whole can it. All its going to do is clean it up any way and it won't over dose on it.:big_smile:

    In My dodge I have been known to dump a whole can in a half tank of fuel if I am going to do some heavy hauling.

    The original company developed the product for the marine industry in the 30s hence the name Seafoam.The military and after market auto industry quickly caught on and started using the product.You all will be happy to know they now have a transmission treatment and a spray lube.:smile2:
