    Sea Foam engine treatment was recommended to my by a old salt lawn mower and small engine mechanic who had been working on motors before I was even an itch in my dads crotch. Now that I am not in the business anymore I only run it through my engines once a year.

    What are your guys opinion on the product?

    I don't know about motors, but it helps with nasty itches.

    Worked on noisy hydraulic valves in several Kohlers......and never had to change them out so I like it. Use it on Echo stuff .

    Been using it for 7 yrs now and still running the same mower all those years with no carb problems. I learned about this stuff back in the early 90's when I was an outboard boat motor mechanic. All the mfgs. reccomended using it. I run it in all my equipment every week. Buy it in the gallons, it's a lot cheaper.

    Sea foam is great. If a mower is running rough, maybe some gunk in the carb, or build up from combustion I will run some through. Within a few lawns, everything will be running right.
    I also use it for winterizing my equipment, it seems to work better than Stabil.
