Sure, there are other solvents I could have used to dissolve the varnish, but Sea Foam worked. I have since used it on other engines that were showing signs of carburetor gum up and found it got them back running fine. It's not a cure-all, but if it is going to work it is quick and easy and not too expensive, so it's worth a try.
Agreed. I had a generator that would not idle unless the choke was on. After 8 hours of run time with Sea Foam, it has never missed a beat in the last 3 years.
