I've tried both, the B12 works, but it doesn't clean the engine out nearly as well as Seafoam does. When you feed the B12 into the engine through the brake booster, it bogs down and stalls quickly. Once you start the motor back up, it hardly makes any smoke either. If you feed the Seafoam through the brake booster at a steady rate, the motor will load up but it usually won't stall. It will make tons of blueish/white/gray smoke out the exhaust, since its cleaning the whole engine out.

    Give Seafoam a try, I think you will like it better

    Chemical testing has shown the B12 to be a stronger solvent than the Seafoam, and a much beter price. The smoke is a chemical in the seafoam that is burning off. Soak a plug in one of each and post up pics.

    Seafoam shows naptha and Isopropyl alcohol with a mineral oil carrier(what smokes)

    Berryman's shows toluene and acetone as the main ingredients

    If you say so.

    I will still use Seafoam though. I believe its an overall better product, hence the reason its double the price.

    I haven't ever tried to feed it through the brake booster. It is recommended to dump directly into the crank case via the filler neck and that is what I do. I also dump it directly in the tank for the fuel system. I run the engine for a few minutes and then drain. It has always performed amazingly and, when used properly and as part of regular maintenance, it maintains both the fuel and oiling systems and keeps them very clean. As far as the smoke, I have NEVER had any engine displace smoke when using the B12!?! Based upon my experience the B12 is an absolute performer. Great updates on chem makeup guys keep up the great posts!

    I think that LC has changed their stance on the shock dose recently. The website no longer has it mentioned on the FP page.

    I also agree with Sarge. Solvents might just solventize your engine seals, although Seafoam has a low enough flash point that it will disappear after the engine has been up to temp for a while.

    It basically cleans out the crankcase. I wouldn't leave it in there for any longer than a few miles, since its a liquid. Just pour it in before you change your oil, drive it for a couple miles, and then drain the oil and refill. Oil should come out pretty dirty

    I didn't shock, I used 3 1/2 ounces for 16 gallons, just a tad over 3 per 5 gallons. That;s first dose. Gonna use 1 ounce per 5 gallons next weekend, than once a month I will use 1 ounce per 5 gallons

    Shit this can't be right but I used this stuff, the FP60, last weekend and I used 1/4 less of a tank than I usually do during the week. This is the same drive for 5 years now, and after a week I am on empty by Friday night. Tongiht though I still have a 1/4 tank left

    Just an update here fellas. On the recommendation of Sarge I went out and bought FP60 and starting using it. Well I did my routine stop and go work driving, this time with the FP60 in the tank. Numbers were:

    136.1 miles driven
    6.832 gallons used=




    19.9 MPG........UP from 17.5 FP60 is the shit, I came home with an extra 1/4 of a tank of gas last week...not a misprint, an extra 1/4 of a tank than I usually have left
