    I have a 19HP Kawasaki that I would like to keep the carb in clean condition. Would it be a good idea to run a product like Sea Foam through the tank at every oil change? (50 hrs) If so, How much do I add to a gallon of gas? The directions are not clear as to how much needed to clean the carb Just says "add more to clean" and gives a very wide range or oz per Gal. (like 3 to 21on)
    What do you use and how much?

    The best way to keep a clean carb is to feed it clean fuel. I wouldn't bother with additives.

    And keep the air coming in clean with new air filters and oiled prefilters.

    That's correct Medic77. There's more dirtly fuel issues then about anything.
