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.

One ounce per gallon is all that is needed

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.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
