SEa Foam and Stabil?

4 posts in this topic

I put some stabil in my tank a week ago and ran 1/2 the tank. Can I now fill the tank and ad some Seafoam or should I wait until I run out most of the Stabil treated gas? How is the Seafoam fogger? I bought some for when I store the boat and figured it was good stuff. Just shoot in the plug hole correct? 25 horse Yamaha oil injected. Thanks Guys!

I would fill the tank and treat with Stabil since thats whats in the tank now. Next spring when you need a fill use Sea-Foam. Sea-Foam is a fuel stabilizer but its a better engine decarb.

Yes you can use a fogging oil through the plugs. This will protect the cylinder walls.

When you put the fogging oil in, if possible have someone pull or crank the motor over a couple of times while you spray. This will ensure even and thorough distribution of the fogger.

If your outboard is a 2 cycle spray the fogging oil through the carbs. This will lube the crank and bearings. That's the design of the product. Have the motor at operating temp, and at fast idle and spray a good amount and slow down the idle so the motor stalls out. Between stabil in gas and fogging is the best way to put your outboard to sleep for the winter.

    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.

    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.

    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
