Sea Foam

Anyone use it in your fuel?

Anyone use it in your oil?

Results?

Re: Sea Foam

we used to have a mechanic run 50% fuel and 50% sea-foam in the fuel bowl, it would clean the injectors really well without pulling them out. You just fill the bowl with with that seam foam then let it fill with diesel and it will run like chit an smoke like a train but it will clean those bugers out!

Re: Sea Foam

If you use it make sure you drain the water sep out. The alcohol in the sea foam can carry water through the sep and that is not good for the injectors.

Re: Sea Foam

I fill the fuel bowl with it every time I change the filter

Maybe I don't understand what you mean. Drain it when?

Also the can says it removes moisture. Is that rue or not?

Thanks for all the replies guys

When you change the fuel filter you are suppose to drain the bowl out, because that is where the water sits after it is filtered out of the diesel fuel. It can remove moister because of the alcohol in there, but it may not remove all the water depending on how much is there, and can end up carrying some water threw the injectors, and they will not like that.

Re: Sea Foam

I know that, I do drain the fuel bowl when I change the filter. I was under the impression after reading his post that there was an additional drain you needed to do after adding the sea foam. I guess I read through his post too quick. It sounded to me like I had to drain the sea foam out of the bowl before it went through the injectors.

I'm straight now....Guess I was over-thinking that one....

Re: Sea Foam

I have used sea foam in my motorcycle fuel for years. It's good stuff but I don't think I would and never have put it in my diesel.
