Fuel

Someone told me to put "sea foam auto marine fleet" in my car to clean out the lines because it was sitting at the dealership for a couple months & again now that I've parked it for winter.

He's a mechanic and I trust him, but being that it's a performance car I want to confirm this is okay to put in my car.

I'm sure it is, as it just an additive to help clean the injectors, etc.
I use Techron, which I have always heard is one of the recommended additives and is also used my some of the Top Tier Gas company's.

If he is talking about actually doing a seafoam treatment to your car... you will need to do it a certain way and then wait for the smokeshow to dissipate and then change your oil immediately after.

Apparently there are a couple of different Seaform products and a few different ways of using it. In the oil, in the gas tank, directly into the intake.
here's a video of an application to the intake.
What impressed me was his "mini borescope camera". Never saw one before and it looks pretty cool. (Tediously long video.)

My .02

next time you store it use Stabil added before you fill it with premium

Use the funnel with the spare tire when adding Stabil!

a full tank and Stabil help with fuel going bad during storage. It's prob not needed but it's a few $ worth of insurance.

few weeks don't worry. I consider storage more than 6 weeks. I would worry a bit at 4-6 weeks about battery but idk.

Oh yeah, Welcome to Mevo
