    sea foam

    I was thinking about a gas treatment to lubricate valves and clean fuel system . would it be good to run sea foam or something all the time?

    Seafoam in the tank is good stuff. I use it occasionally in my skis. I also add it to the crankcase in my Tundra about 50 miles before my oil changes. I don't suggest that in a ski though because you cannot get all the oil out on an oil change.

    Some call it snake-oil for combustion engines but I work for a large electric utility that has just about everything made with an engine and the fleet maintenance tech's swear by it for our fleet of tractors, 4 wheelers, boats and air boats.

    I've wondered about adding it to oil before a change, I understand about not getting it all out but was wondering if it would affect the SC washers, etc?

    It's good stuff. In the Hemi cars with MDS that shut down 4 cylinders when under really light load, the MDS solenoids clog up and the deactivation gets rough. Seafoam dissolves the crud saving you a couple hundred and ripping the top of the engine apart. Also frees crudded lifters and oil passages.

    Its possible to buy a spray can of seafoam and spray it directly into the air intake.

    My friend used sea foam in his Kawi 250 and swear he noticed a different in performance. It has been a few months since using it and he hasn't had any problems with his ski.

    You do not want to use a product that is a fuel injector cleaner all the time due to it passing by the rings and contaminating the oil. I saw a customers vehicle that was using Chevron Techron Fuel Treatment almost every fill up and his oil in the pan was sludge. Most companies will say only run a fuel treatment once per oil change due to this problem.
