    I've used it for the past couple of years. I have two 300 gallon storage tanks - one diesel and one unleaded fuel. During different times of the year the fuel sits in the tanks for up to a month without being used. My fuel supplier recommended using it if the fuel sits for awhile. When it has sat for awhile I start mixing it whenever I start refueling a piece of equipment.

    Use it on small engines quite a bit. Its one of the few additives I believe in.

    Ditto -- it's the only product we use now. Developed about 50 years ago for marine engines, it's now considered the best product for any combustion engine. It helps rough-running engines run smoothly, removes moisture, cleans out stuff too. Winterizing = Sta-Bil, But any other time = Sea Foam. Every mechanic I talk to says it's the best. $6 - $8 a can. Not bad.

    Excellent stuff but i have found it works better to mix it really strong.

    Been using it for years. Works wonders in older Fords.

    I think I first used it in 1992.

    I put some in the gas every time I fill the mowers up. Great stuff, and I've been using SeaFoam instead of Sta-bil for the last 2 winters, everything starts right up in spring.
