Sea Foam

I'd like to know what really is the deal. I have heard some conflicting opinions, so maybe having them all in one spot can guide us overall a bit better.

Does this stuff do our machines any real good? Why and how?

What are the alternatives? I've heard mention of B-12. What makes that better??


What do these things do, aside from the claims stated????

Curious minds.........

As others have said it won't do harm and can do good.It's basically the same as many other Petrol treatments like STP/RedX/Wynns.It can help keep the carbs clean and is useful for,"Winterizing" as a fuel stabilizer and can help prevent tank corrosion.

It will not however fix already badly gunged up carbs.

I would not pay premium prices for the Brand name though as any supermarket version will do.
Shep, next time you buy a bottle of STP gas treatment give it a smell, then go smell some diesel fuel.

Most of these petrol treatments are just a form of light oil of one form or another.Some are even hydraulic fluid re-badged.We've been using stuff like it in the Aircraft industry to lubricate fuel injectors in diesel cars running<cough> some fuel they may have found on-site

I don't buy into the hyperbole of Salesmen and Advertising.I test and ask
