Cool Sea Foam My 2 Cents

I thought of going into detail about my usage and experience with Sea Foam. Changed my mind, you will either try it or you won't.

I will say it has served me well with 2 or 4 cycle engines including lawn equipment, outboards, generators, vehicles and now my Toro blower.

I have used it as a stabilizer and a cleaner. If it uses gasoline it gets Sea Foam.

It will remove varnish and carbon build up.
Great product IMO if used properly and regularly. Do some research, you will find positive and negative info.

I can only say positive things.

I use Seafoam and Startron and never any problems. I have used Sta Bil but it doesn't seem to do what it's supposed to do. I'll keep on using these two products because they work for me.

when my brother got his first snowblower I gave him the sta bil I had and instructed him to use more than recommended for his gas can and he has never had a problem with gas going bad. I had soo much seafoam at home at the time that I started using it to stabilize the gas I had

Was my experience with Sta Bil, too. Went with Sea Foam as a replacement and, as you said, it worked.


So, I Ain't switchin' while it's still twitchin'. Whatever that means. It sounded good.


Anyway, I agree -- Sea Foam!

I've used Seafoam for several years now, never had a problem. I've used it as a general stabilizer and even poured a few ounces directly into the carb. of a GT I was flipping once. It was super cool.....lots of white smoke!
