SeaFoam (http://www.seafoamsales.com/motorTuneUp.htm)
A garage must have if you ask me. This stuff is just amazing. I would call "snake oil" if I haven't used it myself and know many others who have done the same.

I have been using it in my bikes for a few years now instead of stabil. This stuff WORKS!

Stabil sucks. This winter I'm completely draining the gas out of my tank and carb before storing it. Last year I used Stabil and it clogged up my carb anyway.

I have to go to the store this week and get some Sea Foam for a new/used car I just got. It runs smooth but I think there might be some carbon build up. I run it through the vacuum line and intake as well.

I'm trying to Seafoam my exe's pilot jets clean on that Ninja 250 before resorting to taking it apart.

For unclogging the carb I feel that Gumout works much better. I like Sea Foam for cleaning vacuum lines, carbon build up, and for winterizing. I've found running Gumout through the tank works better for clogged carbs.

Once the clog is gone I think Sea Foam does a good job at keeping it all clean.

Chris:

Application rates for fuel say "Average 1 oz. per gallon". Would you recommend I go a little more for the initial clean out, or leave it at that?

I can't view the videos. For some reason I can't get Flash to load onto my machine. I've been fighting it for a few months.

I would go double that. Do this... put it in the gas tank, ride to gas station and fill up.

Could also, pull off the gas tank line open the carb drain... once the gas is drained.. pour the seafoam into the carb via the line till you see it draining... close carb drain and let it soak.

yeah you can go more for cleaning out.....I have a 4.4 gallon tank on my scoot and I put in 5-6 oz.
I have been using SeaFoam for a couple of years now....since Chris put up the first post on this on the other site....I use it in my snowmobile...4 wheeler...lawn mower etc.... good shit!

Why not use Seafoam over standard Stabil? It stabalizes the petro but has the added cleaners n shit in it. Just makes sense!

I would agree, Seafoam rocks. Been using it for a few years now. Works on everything from car to snowblower to bike to lawn mower.

I'm thinking of running it in every tank, or close to it, next year. Keep things cleaned out. It's expensive though. LOL O'Reiley's sells it by the gallons which makes it cheaper.

Un-nessicariy IMO. I would say maybe a tank of it every oil change.

i agree - every tank would just be overkill.. typically i run it beginning of season and put it in end of season for storage.. seems to work just fine that way..

once i tried seafoam wouldn't use anything else for storage.. they say mechanics in the know use seafoam first before turning a wrench on a rough running bike or car..

Yeah its amazing stuff. If you don't expierence it, you'd think it was "snake oil" by hearing all the great things it does.

I really don't have any faith in Stabil. But this seafoam stuff is AWESOME!

I went from stabil to Seafoam about 6 years ago and think it's better too.
