Do you mix a batch and store it till needed or just mix up what you plan on using? If you store it, in what type of container?I'm a believer and use in everything from lawn mower, atv, boat, car or anything with a motor. Really helped smooth out the ATV.
I have been making my own for the past 2 years using diesel, naptha and iso-heet in a 4:2:1 ratio by volume. Cant tell the difference from the original.
Will try and post a link to a guy who tested different combinations of making seafoam and his results.
I mix it up a batch at a time and keep it around till i use it. I store it in old growler bottles since they are glass and tinted to help keep the light out.Do you mix a batch and store it till needed or just mix up what you plan on using? If you store it, in what type of container?
I'm mixed it in with my mix oil for my chainsaw and power ice auger.Do you mix a batch and store it till needed or just mix up what you plan on using? If you store it, in what type of container?
I believe much depends on use and climate. It has rained so much over the past two months in Valdez that everything has moisture on it and is sweating. Most of my tools are wet just sitting in the work shed. I open up my boats engine cover and it is just sweating moisture. My chainsaw gets tied down on the back of the sled, 2-3 miles across the river, used, hauled back and forth about 4-5 times a day when I'm cutting. Some years I've cut 8-9 cords. There is just no end to the moisture over here. Lowe River is lapping at the highway again. Creek behind the house is the highest I have ever seen since the 100-year flood back in 06(?)
Agreed. Living in condensing atmosphere is fun times. But I typically don't run any kind of additive and I've never received any water from the harbor fuel dock.I listen to my boat mechanic as he deals with issues way more than I do. Like tank full/tank empty in the winter for the boat. He says that over 3 months that the gas loses octane. So, leave them empty. But we get so much moisture over here, I opt for full with Stabil. I run half a tank empty in the spring and fill it with fresh. Then switch and repeat. I won't run a tank empty until I'm sure I have fresh tank in the other one.
Many claim that they get water in their gas at the fuel dock here. I have poured out and inspected my fuel filters for the past several years and I can say that that is false. I might have a tiny bit, but nothing worth mentioning. Even when you have to fuel up in the rain, nothing in the fuel. BUT, does the Seafoam help that. Can't say for sure.
You should try a bottle of seafood and see if it makes a difference in any your high milage, "perfectly running engines", then report back to us
Living life the right way?
I don’t think it’s as simple as that, for one thing I think the octane level in the fuel you use has something to do with it among other things. I use 90 in my boat in conjunction with with sea foam. I mostly use it just to clean out the injectors. I am lucky if I put 100 hours a summer on my motor. Is it necessary probably not but I can tell you when I change the oil and plugs every fall, there is little build up and the oil isn’t as dirty as it was before I tried. As for using Marvels I heard it lubricates the valves and stuff since they came out with that cleaner burning diesel fuel. Again no way of knowing for sure but I would rather not find out by having to rebuild my top ends on my truck or tractor.
