    I'm curious what Seafoam did for you? I know it has an almost cult-like following but I tried it and was not impressed.

    Sea Foam is a great product. I run it quite a bit in the winter to prevent gelling. I would use it exclusively if it wasn't so expensive. Adding a $7 can to each tank gets to be a little spendy.

    i think seafoam is the cats ass, we use it in with two stroke mix, and put a can in once or twice a year in all my vehicles.

    IMO I just don't believe in a mechanic in a bottle! However my wifes transmission was acting funny when cold, it would redline in first and then it was like it shifted in neutral. I am pretty sure it was a valve sticking so I tried Sea Foam Transmission Tune and it fixed it. The whole cleaning the intake crap IMO with todays clean running vehicles all you need is good gas, clean oil, fuel filter, air filter, pvc valve and you should never have a carbon problem. If you do nothing works better than water, rev motor to 3000 rpm and squirt just a little water at a time in the brake booster vacuum line. You guys might think this is insane but it is an old school trick that really does clean up the carbon and valve deposits.

    Internal engine carbon isn't nearly as much of an issue as it once was but you've obviously never had the intake, injectors, or throttle body off a late model vehicle then I'm assuming? Thats where the carbon buildup hides and the "manual" treatments are beneficial for.

    Not insane at all, used to do it quite regularly years ago as a home brew method on carbureted vehicles and it works well. But it's not a good idea on a fuel injected vehicle as water (steam) is a contaminate to 02 sensors and it doesn't clean the root areas of carbon buildup in the intake system like previously mentioned anyway.

    I am a sea foam user myself. When the cummins truck gets a fuel filter, I fill the filter bowl with sea foam before putting the cap on. Same goes for the boat, but I prime the filter with sea foam.
