Seafoam Bottle vs Spray Can

The Seafoam in the bottle is exactly the same as the one in the spray can. But the spray can costs more and you get a lot less product (12 oz vs 16 oz). Marketing is the art of selling less for more.

WD-40 is the same way. There is a charge for convenience.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

Exactly right!......I have use the spay can on cars when you are trying to spray in in to a vacuum line against the firewall. It would be very hard to make up a funnel or use a syringe to inject it.

The spray has propellant, the spray can which costs more to manufacture, the interal workings of the can, and the spray nozzle, not to mention the cap. Yeah, it's probably $.50 worth of stuff, but that's $2 by the time it gets to retail. There's just more to it.

You can buy your own spray cans or use a cheap one you already have.

If you are really feeling adventurous:
