    How Much Of This Stuff Do You Mix With Your 2cycle Gas? And Will It Work To Clean The Carbon Off The 4mx Vales?

    Add to mixed oil/gas according to label directions. Not in place of 2 cycle oil but in addition to the same. Seafoam is good for most everything but brushing your teeth!

    If intake is gunked up it's likely due to the use of regular unleaded, which over time likes to leave black or brown deposits.
    It has to do with impurities, these are left behind as the fuel burns.

    I use premium unleaded, not much for putting nobody else's mystery foam or atlantic horse oils in my fuels, premium keeps all my intake related parts squeaky clean, make it a name brand such as BP / Texaco / Shell, maybe Sunoco. If I really want to go nuts on my fuel, I go get a gallon or two of 110 octane leaded racing gasoline, at $6 / gallon I mix a pint of that with 5 gallons premium and it's way cheaper, plus racing fuel is mostly additives anyhow.
