added seafoam question.?

I removed my fuel filter and filled up bowl with seafoam. Closed it all back down. Fired it up. I did not really notice any different smoking as people mentioned. How long idling and being revved to 1500 rpm does it take approx to use the fuel from the bowl. I know we dont use too much fuel idling. How long does it need to run?Its running fine, no smoing or anything??

I did the same thing last night, and didn't have any smoke like I'm use to seeing when I've used seafoam on other vehicles...?

Same here,,,, changed filters Monday evening, topped the canister with Sea Foam, idled for a while, real clean, no smoke, drove it fairly light for several miles. Seemed to help out a little, smoothed out the motor somewhat, seemd to also quitened the injectors down some ? ? Mine has 135 k, so the stock injectors are tired anyway. Time to change em'......

Can't you just put a bottle of it in your tank? What's the benefit of running it straight?

The higher concentration in the bowel acts like a shock treatment, more cleaning effect at once, the in tank treatment is good preventive maintence.


We do the same thing to outbaord motors with a lot of hours on them. Remove plugs, tilt motor up high, pour in or spray "ringfree" or Powertune" into each cylinder, put plugs in finger tight ,let it sit over, remove plugs, lower tilt on motor, turn motor over to blow out liquid, put in plugs, launch boat, run the pizz outta it for 30-45 minute WOT, watch the massive cloud of smoke disappear, then install new plugs and yer good to go.

The shock treatment removes all the built up carbon from the ring grooves, helps the rings seal like they are supposed to, restoring the lost compression due to sticky rings.
