I use seafoam on my sled's, lawnmower's , tiller, weedwacker before i put them away. Efi or carb shouldn't make a difference i almost think you can put it in diesel motor's also but i might be wrong on that. Read the bottle it would say what its safe for.

I used Seafoam in my F7...that stuff is awsome. I now run it in my lawn mower, snow blower and anything else with a gas motor that may sit for a while. I'd drain the old gas and put fresh stuff in and add the Seafoam...then run it for a few minutes...or until you feel the heat exchanger getting warm. I'm pretty sure you can add a full can to a tank of gas.

Seafoam is an all in one fuel treatment. I highly recommend using it for your snowmobiles, cars trucks anything. You can use it in diesel or gas even in oil to clean an engine out.

The stuff rocks, and I highly recommend using it. I used one can in my car when it was running like crap, and after it ran that stuff for not even an hour, it had stopped sputtering. Cleaned out them injectors real nice!

i've used it with great success. usually, i run it in the first couple tanks of fuel each season and cleans things great. i don't think there is a need to put it in the cylinders, just run it in the gas. one can treats 25 gallons so i pour half a can in on the first two fill-ups.

I've heard good things on these forums about using Seafoam in your sled. But when I was at my cat dealer the other day getting my spring retainers I asked about it and they said not to. Just use this starbrite enzyme fuel treatment. So I'm not sure what to do?

My dealer told me to use an octane boost that they use in all their sleds for summerizing them. Of course it's more expensive than sea foam and once I did I found out on here that it's useless. Plan on sticking with just sea foam now after seeing all the posts on here.

This is an interesting thread.

I left my tank about half full and added STA-BIL at the end of the season.
Should I still add Seafoam now.
And do you add the Seafoam in lieu of cleaning the carbs, or do both.
Thanks
