How much seafoam?

6 posts in this topic

I see that a lot of folks use seafoam as a stabilizer rather than stabill.

How much do you use per 1 gallon of gas?

The can says 1 oz. per gallon as a maintenance additive but I am sure most folks using it on this board have enough experience/experimentation to know how much to use.

If you use Jiffy oil you don't need to add a stabilizer because it already has it. That's basically the difference between Jiffy and Strikemaster oils. I use it year around, it works great in my chainsaw in the summer.

When mixing a gallon of gas, I use "not quite" and ounce. Just enough to try to keep condensation out of the gas can. Auger gas can sit for so long fluctuating between fridged to "warm" conditions condensation can be a problem.

I switched to the New Marine Blue StaBil formula last season. It has 5 times the carb cleaners and protects the engine from ethanol fuel cylinder problems of moisture contamination or rusting internally.

I use 1.5 to 2 oz Marine Blue StaBil per gallon with the recommended oil/gas ratio.

I also run a dose in my vehicles, really seen a difference in the fuel injection system, she has more response and idles and starts much better in cold weather.

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
