this is the second post that come with a 2-3 mpg increase. scared to put it in a vac line and water also would clean carbon. That is too over the top for me. I run this this stuff in the gas of my weed eater and lawn mower. It just works for me period.

I'm just surprised you guys pay too much money for snake oil that you could home brew.

Water or ATF has always worked well for me, in the intake. In the tank I use kerosene and ATF. As for the crankcase, just run good oil.

The guys at IPD recommend the stuff. I have a can for my tranny, but I've never used it. I've never heard anything bad about it.

I'm surprised they buy cheapo gasoline, and try to fix the excess carbon build up with Seafoam. Run Amoco 91 Octane religiously and a can of Chevron FI Cleaner, every other 3000 miles, and/or a can of Ventil Sauber, "blow it out good" on the hiway once in a while and you'll have little need for Seafoam IMO. Especially if + turbo motor.

Make sure your car runs well (tune up), change the oil hot and often, use good gas, and put the HAMMER DOWN on a regular basis. I have used this and similar products in the past with good results, but if you maintain whatever you drive, and actually DRIVE the damn thing you should not need to resort to this stuff. I'm pretty sure in just about every owners manual I have ever read they strongly recommend to not and anything but gas (or diesel) to the fuel tank, and oil in the crankcase.

If you run quality fuel, use synthetic oil, and stay on top of maintenance, you wont need to use seafoam.
