What to Use Sea Foam Motor Treatment For

1. Using Sea Foam For Maintenance

If you’re regularly adding Sea Foam and looking to maintain a clean engine, Sea Foam recommends a low dose of just 1 ounce per gallon of fuel. One pint will treat a full tank of up to 16 gallons. Just pour the Sea Foam directly into your gas tank.

2. Using Sea Foam For Cleaning

Carbon build up on engine valves, pistons and combustion chambers rob an engine of performance and fuel economy. Sea Foam will reduce the amount of carbon build up on these components. When cleaning is your goal, Sea Foam recommends a higher concentration. You can add Sea Foam to a low tank to get the most out of your treatment. If you think you’ve added too much, just add more fuel to dilute. Your engine will still be safe. For cleaning, shoot for a concentration between 2 ounces of Sea Foam per gallon of fuel, or as high as a 50/50 Sea Foam to fuel mix ratio.
