Normally, I have always used Gumout with REGAIN.The REGAIN is the secret ingredient that makes it the best gas additive to cars and bikes. When I use it on my Valk (4 gallon tank) I used it over three tanks. With seafoam, do I put the whole bottle in on the 6 gallon tank on the wing?

Yup, the TX was not comming on. So i wiggled some wires and could get it to come on. So, after some playing, i was able to tie wrap it such that it works fine. I will look at the wires when i get a chance.

Well, I just bought some last week & read the directions...they recommend 1[suP]1[/suP]/[suB]2[/suB] oz. per quart of oil in the crankcase, and 1 oz. per gallon in the gas tank. :action:

Also, I see they have several other products out there, and I almost bought the wrong stuff for my application, as the cans are printed similarly...had I not noticed in time, I would have been adding their auto trans product to my wife's crankcase. :shock::3sum:

I just put Seafoam in my gas tank yesterday. Since it's running fine I put 1oz/gallon [mostly for storage].

If I am cleaning out my fuel system & carbs, I put the entire can in, run it through the same day, refill the gas + change the oil & filters when I get home.

Every Spring, I put about a half can in the 90 day old oil, run it for about 50 miles & change the oil before it gets cold.

About the same routine for my last 5 bikes.

For both my4 wheels I useabout 0.5oz/galof Isopropylalcoholin thegas tankwith every fill up during sub-freezing weather. It's about 5x cheaper than the dry gas products.
