Seafoam is great for injectors but horrible for DPF's! It causes tons of regens.

I missed the oil part. Now I feel dumb, and hope the OP meant fuel additive.

I wouldn't put it in the fuel either. It's a detergent, not a lubricity additive. Might as well just use gasoline. It's cheaper

That's weird because it specifically states its NOT a detergent, contains no detergents and adds LUBRICITY to fuel specifically ultra low sulfur diesel. Weird



In the fuel it's fine, in the oil (diesel) I really don't know, I wouldn't use it

In the oil (gasser) its ok but I wouldn't run it for more than a 100 miles or so before changing the oil.

I was out of diesel Kleen the other day and happened to have a bottle of sea foam and I didn't think twice about pouring it in the tank.

That's weird because:

Sea Foam Motor Treatment | Sea Foam Sales Company

Quote:
Safely helps quiet noisy lifters, helps remove fuel deposits and oil residue, helps smooth rough idle. For Carburetors or Fuel Injected Gasoline Engines Autos Trucks Tractors Motorcycles Marine Small Engines Industrial Engines Great for Diesel Engines Too!

SEA FOAM Motor Treatment is a petroleum based product that helps clean internal fuel and oil system components. SEA FOAM is an EPA-registered product, and will not harm engine components, seals, gaskets, catalytic converters or oxygen sensors.

SEA FOAM helps liquefy gum and varnish deposits when added to fuels or oils. Mechanics have used Sea Foam for many things over the years including cleaning fuel injectors when using their professional injector cleaning machines also used to clean air induction systems and Throttle Bodies. When Using Sea Foam Motor Treatment to clean Air induction systems and Throttle Bodies the use of an S tool attachment is necessary to soak down the Throttle Body. If you do not have an S Tool at your disposal Sea Foam Spray should be used. Next a nylon brush is used to clean throttle plates and throttle body housing. This is only a few examples why Sea Foam has been so popular with professional mechanics for over 70 years.

As a fuel system additive, Sea Foam helps, clean carburetor jets, clean passageways, clean fuel injectors, clean deposits, stabilize fuel for up to 2 years, control moisture and adds lubricity to fuel.

As an oil system additive, Sea Foam helps prevent and clean oil residue deposits.
see how many times they mention cleaning, removing deposits/residue/etc.

it does say adds lubricity to fuel, but I can assure you they're talking about gasoline...

Bob Fout had Sea Foam lab tested and found that it did NOT add lubricity to diesel fuel.

You guys should seriously research the stuff you dump into your $10-20k engines

Yet it specifically mentions it in the diesel facts and nowhere in the gasoline facts does it mention adding lubricity to the fuel.

To each his own
