My brother told me it would work good and he put it in my truck... it works good but you have to deal with a LOT of smoke for a while until it cleans everything out. It was a little embarrassing to go down the road and I couldn't see anything behind because of the giant smoke cloud. So if you have time to let it sit or go down a back road and let it work its way out of the system, that may be ok. So yes, it works good

Seafoam is not meant to be poured into the oil and left there. It's only put into the oil as a sludge and carbon cleaner. It's ok to run it until the engine warms up nicely (or for a short drive) and then change the oil. There are plenty of stories on the net of people having serious bearing problems after leaving Seafoam in their oil for far too long. Do it just before an oil change.

That being said, it works very well as an upper intake cleaner, etc.. It removes gummy fuel and carbon deposits like nothing else. I do not put it in my oil anymore, but I do feed it into the vacuum line to clean the upper end while holding the throttle at a constant 2 to 3 grand. Once a year or so I will pour a tiny bit into a full tank of fuel.

To each his own, but I'd never put anything in my oil that actually thins it out and leave it there... Just think, if it removes carbon and gummy deposits so easily, what do you think it's gonna do to your oil? Try your own little experiment and see...

It works great if you run it through the intake and gas tank. People have had problems with it fouling plugs so they usually do a treatment before a tune up. With it cleaning all the deposits and gunk, some of it does make it into the oil, so an oil change/filter should also follow.

I poured a full can straight into my gas tank and my wife's. The had some bad gas and it took care of it. Works great in the fuel system. I have over 125k and the wife has over 165k.
