Default sea foam qustion

The directions say 1.5 x 5 qt. = 7.5 oz. in crankcase oil - I'm due for a oil change soon,so I want to put some in the oil but how soon after should I change the oil ?.

I always divide it up into 3

Some in the crankcase
Some in the Fuel tank
Some in the brake booster line. (see pic)

Do a oil change at least a few days after
Make sure you have less then 1/4 gas. Best would be to do it when gas light comes on.

Brake Booster line

I thought 7.5 was a little to much - so 2.5 oz. should work then? and no low fuel light.
