It really does something, quicker starts it seems, the feul economy is like improved 2-3 mpg, the motor seems to run a hell of a lot smoother, and acceleration has improved, cleaner revs, and the plugs I put in three months ago are clean....

I always do because it cleans deposits in the take that probably get caught in the filter..

Use good fuel like exxon and you'll have less fuel issues... Trust me

---------- Post added at 08:07 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:06 PM ----------

I can tell the difference in exxon VS competitor fuel. Bc I believe not all fuel is equal. Some fuel comes with additives and exxon has great fuel I'ma exxon fan.

+11111 I agree with blackedout on this one. I love Exxon Mobil gas compared to say Hess gas. And I'm defiantly interested in this gum out and I plan on trying it out when I fill my car for the week.

All I ever use is Exxon, shell and Sunoco, the last one being my favorite, I just don't like the way my car feels with BP, I never use no name brands in any car.

Thanks. Enjoy this. Bc I think seafoam is a scam. It cleans yes but think about it after this guy on this forum brought up, where do these harmful contaminates go? They go straight to the combustion chamber what cleans it from there??? Gum out. That's why after I seen the motor head commercial I tried it, it's been 150 thousand miles later and still at a quarter tank mainly due to my driving habit I'm hard on the gas real hard and motor feels brand new at 130k miles.... And I love it.

Exxon, exxons sister station moble or something like that they don't have those around here they just have exxon, shell, racetrack as a last resort, and I avoid small gas stations with cheap fuel. Cheap fuel = out of wallet cost on repairs. I tell that to any big shot chevy, import, dodge owner. It doesn't matter what you have it matters on how you treat it. Like a women, doesn't matter black, white, red head, brunette, or blond it all depends on how you treat them... Lmao

It's all about how you treat it, treat it good it'll stick around longer... Treat it treat it well.

---------- Post added at 08:55 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:53 PM ----------

Exxon gas, and penzoil.

Re: Never use seafoam ever again

i go to a no name station here in town...it's the only station that sell non ethonal gas...best butt dyno difference gas around town + i've gotten a nice mpg increase since using the place.

but i'll keep using seafoam just because it's tried and true for anything i've owned...doesn't mean i won't try the other stuff out. i just don't plan to stop using seafoam

Just a heads up, nothing kills cats faster than this stuff. Its too big to get past the cats and can quickly clog them. I don't believe in any seafoam products because they break off carbon deposits (especially when used in the crankcase) that can clog up oil lines, shift deposits to worse places, and can quickly destroy valve seals. If you use seafoam quickly every oil change then I think its a decent product because it removes deposits before they get big enough to be damaging. But putting it into a car with 60k miles for the first time is asking for it. Gum out is a fuel treatment and really doesn't do the same job as seafoam. I like lucas top end lubricant for gas treatments and I use one every couple of tanks. (Actually half of one). Its just a fine oil designed to keep injectors clean.

Its the same concept as what they use in dealerships to clean out engines. The process they use consists of them using one drop of the stuff every 2-3 seconds over a period of 10-15 minutes. This prevents the system from getting red hot and ruining your cats. Of course the stuff they use is a hell of alot stronger then seafoam but its the same principle.

Re: Never use seafoam ever again

Seafoam makes a huge difference right away when 1 can is in gas tank and other is used pulled into vacuum line.

Of course if its at a certain stage the best thing to do for clogged injectors is to completely remove them then flush them out one at a time. One of mine is badly clogged and seafoam hasnt remedied it yet. Of course my car also sat for 8 years do who knows what is in my lines.

Problems with fuel lines and/or injectors would be better treated by gas tank additives made by BG Products. They can be contacted by phone or by e-mail. As far as treating an engine that's in good working order, with Seafoam introduced into the upper intake, there is no danger at all. Catalytic converters break down by unburned fuel reaching them. The Seafoam, just like the $400.00 induction cleanings with the "I.V. Bag Drip" has to be introduced slowly. "Everything In Moderation"- Just like everything in every aspect of life.

Also Robb, which BG Product would you recommend for badly clogged injectors?

Did you watch the video? They said the same thing! It carries the deposits to the combustion chamber and burns them... They had a picture of it...if you believe sea foam is a scam for that reason maybe you should reevaluate your new product cause according to your reasoning its a scam too... Just saying..... Not trying to be a jerk either just read it and maybe think

Seafoam and Gumout were recommended to me by Ryobi. So I'd imagine it's a good product,

Anything that gets in the combustion chamber burns up. Lmao seafoam works temporary the gumout lasted longer.

But your reasoning to why sea foam was a scam was because the crap went into the combustion chamber...I added your quote...
