Seafoam

Is Seafoam safe to use in the fuel? Any better than Lucas or Powerservice?

yeah its safe to use, i would recommend it over lucas or powerservice anyday. personally i dont use it but have had alot of injection service shops tell me to stay away from powerservice as is dries the fuel, which im not a huge fan of. take it for what its worth.

Its safe to use. What most people do is dump it in their fuel bowl when they change fuel filters. You do not need to use it regularly

I bought two cans of it and I want to try that, but I've been too chicken to put it in. Are you guys absolutely sure that it's safe to run your motor on 100% seafoam until the bowl empties out??? Mind you, I'm not saying it ain't, I'm just ignorant on the scenario and too chicken to take any chances with a truck that costs this much!

You've done this in your 06? So do you use the whole can in the fuel canister on the top of the engine (I know that's a stupid question, but that's me )
