sea foam?

I heard when changing the fuel filter I can add seafoam to the filter cannister? Just fill it up with the chemical? Will this hurt anything to run it straight like this?
thx

thats the perfect response right there lol ... use it every time u change the fuel filter and u can use it as a fuel additive too ... the stuff is great .... just DO NOT put it in your oil like it says in the can ... heui probably wouldnt like u nor would ur injectors

Why wouldn't someone want to put in with oil like they suggest to??? I was planning on using some kind of additive with my next oil change, be it Rev X or this, so curious what the reasoning is for NOT using.

Thanks in advance for any info to this newbie

I'll take a stab at this one. I assume it would break down the molecular structure of the oil thereby not allowing it to lubricate/ operate the injectors properly.

well in power strokes (all but the 6.4) the oil is used (at very high pressures) to actuate the injectors and therefore inject the fuel ... so anything that lowers the viscosity or cleans (seafoam) or foams (lucas oil stabilizer) can increase your chances of messing up ur injectors and/or HPOP (high pressure oil pump) ... therefore making it a bad choice ... just do ur regular oil changes with a good, certified oil and youll be fine .. no need to worry about adding crap to clean out your crankcase if ur oil is changed regularly and u dont beat on ur truck
