Seafoam

I'm changing my oil tomorrow and plan on running seafoam before I do. I'm already using it in my fuel but wondering how the best way to do this will be.

Ok right after I posted I decided to search and found where ppl are saying NOT to add to oil......anyone have experience? If I shouldn't then I'd better get up early and change it before I go anywhere because I decided to go ahead and add some before I forgot but it hasn't been ran with it.

DO NOT RUN IT IN YOUR OIL. Well unless you want to replace your injectors shortly after

Drain your fuel filter bowl and put it in there

Yea I reckon I'll change my oil 1st thing before I run the seafoam and tear something up and I'll add to my fuel bowl. I ran it through my moms s10 blazer with 230,000 and it seemed to help alot and I also added some to our ford compact tractor.

DO NOT ADD IT TO YOUR OIL!!! our injectors use oil pressurized at a few thousand psi to fire them, even using a slightly diffrent oil viscosity could be catastrophic

I ran it in my truck without problems at all. Ran it for about a thousand miles or so. We have 15 some odd quarts of oil a little additive wont kill your motor/injectors. I used it because the truck sat for a few years before I picked it up and It ran fine with the seafoam. I wanted to get rid of any deposits and sludge. Now I run purple and its running like a champ. Plus the chemicals in seafoam dissapate over use and breakdown.
I wouldnt run it every fill-up or change but it was a one time thing.
