I agree,the fuel sensor in my vette quit and the gauge was all over the place,after a treatment of Seafoam,it fixed it after everything else wouldn't.The gauge in my F-350 Dually did the same thing and Seafoam corrected that also. Great stuff.

I have not used Sea Foam or any other additives with my PSD, but I have used Sea Foam in my boat Mercury outboard 4-stroke fuel injector motor by filling up the fuel filter container with straight Sea Foam. It did not do a thing for that motor despite of a lot of people saying it is great injector cleaner. The fuel injectors had to be removed and sent to a shop using ultrasonic and high pressure cleaning to get them purring again.

I am going to try Sea Foam when I change fuel filter on the PSD to see how it goes with diesel engine.

Eh sucking up straight seafoam probably isnt good. And yeah it'll be good to your PSD no problems.

How often is good practice to run a bottle through the tank, everytime a guy changes the oil, or more frequently? Thanks...

My truck has 285,000 miles on it and the fuel gauge just screwed up after all that time ,I would suggest maybe once a year or as needed.

There is nothing wrong w/ sucking straight seafoam. It's petrolium and will lube things better than straight diesel being sucked in

Never have used it. I'm getting ready to due my fuel filter this weekend. So I'll try some in there. So do you just pour the whole thing in the fuel bowl or what?
