Seafoam engine treatment.

You will be amazed what this product can do. It typically is used as a fuel system additive, but has many other uses. When used as a fuel system additive you should expect almost immediate results. The primary ingredient burns very rapidly and at an extremely high temperature producing a burn-off cleaning effect within the engine and exhaust system. This may cause your engine to run much smoother and quieter. It can also be used as a engine flush to aid in the removal of built up gunk and sludge.

The product is also available in one gallon cans.

Warning: Burns extremely hot!
Use caution when the application is air-cooled.

Sea Foam

Use Shell/BP in my car so I haven't noticed any difference in 5000 mi. maybe if I used lower quality gas it would make a difference.

      Comments about Sea Foam Motor Treatment for Gas and Diesel Engines (16 fl. oz.):

      My 5 year old snowblower was starting to surge and sound as if it was running out of gas even with a full tank. I figured it was the carb and anticipated the pain of loading it into my truck ( no trailer) and then the cost and wait knowing a snow storm is on its way bringing 12-14 inches. I bought this stuff and poured an oz into my snowblower gas tanks. I ran it for three minutes then did a big strip to widen my driveway and by the time I was done ( 10 minutes total) my snowblower was running smooth as ever! Best money I have ever spent. I'll use this in all my small engines around the property now.

      I used a can of Sea Foam in my 2001 Subaru Outback and immediately my gas mileage decreased by 4 miles to the gallon. The car does not run any better but it sure killed my gas mileage. I was getting 24 mpg around town and now I get 20 mpg. Don't want anymore of your Sea Foam.

            Gave my 98 GMC Sierra 4x4 the Sea Foam treatment. It cleaned carbon deposits and improved injector and engine performance. Ran about 6 oz. through the intake manifold and saw an improvement in engine performance. You could actually see the carbon being blown out of the exhaust pipes. Gas mileage and overall engine power improved. I'm going to do the treatment on my 06 Trailblazer.

              I recently purchased a used 2008 Honda Shadow Aero 750 with 5,500 original miles. The bike did not get rode frequently enough and sat for approx 10 months. It did not run very well so I drained the old gas and filled it back up with fresh high octane gas (3 gallons) and 8 0zs of SeaFoam. This stuff really helped. After letting the bike idle for about 45 mins and riding for around 80 miles the carburetor functioned much better. The hesitation and back firing stopped. I ran SeaFoam through the fuel system for two more gas tanks full and the bike got even better. GREAT STUFF! I'll be using it in my other two bikes also.

                      I'm happy to help, Peter! Sea Foam Motor Treatment for Gas and Diesel Engines (Part No. SF16) will not be able to clean the throttle body on your vehicle by pouring it into your fuel tank. Fuel does not enter the air stream until after the butterfly in the throttle body.

                      If you are trying to clean the butterfly and throttle body, you will likely need to remove your air inlet tubing/housing and clean the throttle body with a throttle body cleaner, such as Valvoline Carb and Throttle Body Cleaner (Part No. 602333) or CRC Throttle Body and Air Intake Cleaner (Part No. 05078). Some vehicle manufacturers may recommend using only brake parts cleaner, such as Wearever Brake Parts Cleaner (Part No. W7340) or Wearever Low-VOC Brake Parts Cleaner (Part No. W7341)

Sea Foam recommends an average of 1 ounce Sea Foam Motor Treatment to each gallon of Gasoline (including 5%, 10%, 12% & 15% Ethanol) and Diesel fuel, including (off road low sulfur) and Ultra Low Sulfur blends. With any vehicle or system using E-85 fuel, use 2 ounces Sea foam per gallon of the fuel. For Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel blends, Sea Foam recommends a minimum of 1 ounce Sea Foam Motor Treatment per gallon of the Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel fuel.

                      Hello AllyMayDog, I will be happy to help you with that question. Highway driving (55 mph) is recommended because it puts a adequate load on the engine. If you can get that type of load in the city then that should be okay. Highway is highly recommended.

We have an Ohio E-Check next month and I am hoping this might help. Would it be beneficial to try? And even if it doesn't help, would it hurt the car? 2002 Hyundai Accent GL. Thanks.

As a service to all customers, Advance Auto Parts conducts check engine scans on most OBD II (1996 and newer) equipped vehicles except where prohibited by law. To confirm if the service is available at your desired store location, please contact the store directly. Once you have the code you can look it up to see what is causing the light to come on. Have you checked your gas cap? Even a loose cap can cause the light to come on. The code is 5 digits, for example P0300 or P0714.

                      Hi Hal, good question! It depends on what fuel you are treating. The premixed two cycle fuel of one can will treat 8 gallons of fuel. In any straight gas in cars, trucks or 4 cycle engines, 16 ounces of Sea Foam treats 16 gallons of fuel (ave. 1 ounce per gallon). Also, 16 ounces of Sea Foam will treat 25 gallons of diesel fuel.
