    cant hurt seeing as how its a pure petroleum product. I have done it and was pleased with the SOTP result. Nice smoke show too...

    Just did the daily driver. 1/3 can in the fuel, 1/3 can in the oil, 1/3 can sucked in the brake booster.

    Put seafoam in the fuel and oil a week before I did the top end cleaning.
    I sucked the seafoam in the brake booster Saturday night, then Sunday morning drove it hard to let it stop smoking. Then changed the oil.

    Was having issues running 85 octane before...now it is running fine on it.

    Colorado.
    Since the altitude effectively lowers the compression ratio, they get away with selling us lower octanes at costs of everyone else.
    We have 85, 87, 91.
    Very few places have 93.

    85 octane is probably at the cheap-o marts. I used SeaFoam once behind a empty Food store parking lot. I dumped the whole can in alil at a time and no smoke. I then took it out of park and nailed it. I actually smoked out two kids riding their bikes on the side of me that one covered his mouth and the other almost fell off. My car feels better now.

    Maybe theres no 93 in Colorado because of the elevation, but I have lived on the East Coast all my life (Florida, S. Carolina, and now communist virginia) and I have honestly never seen a station that didnt have 93 or for that case a station with 85...I have even seen 94 in some places. The norm for here is 87 89 93 and if your lucky 94.

    I know. Been out there before. Same way when I visit family in the mid-west.
    I wouldn't mind having higher octane fuel around here. But I use what we have.

    Yea i believe that it works...i dont think youll really feel a difference unless you have a lot of miles, have never done it, and run shitty gas ALL the time. If nothing else its a good smoke show if you do it right!
