well, i don't think the stuff is actual ocean water...:lol4:

i know that folks with gassers use it and say it does wonders, they but some in the brake booster line, and some in the fuel tank...

after it's done, they change the plugs and oil, i'm jes wonderin if it's the same process(minus plugs of course..:hehe::hehe:) for diesels

Your diesel doesn't need it. Not sure does much for gassers either. Not putting anything in "brake booster line" either. For a gasser that would be directlly into intake. Diesel with 'hydroboost' has no such line. Change your fuel filter and you have cleaned the fuel delivery system. Cause the filter and bottom of fuel tank is only places you will find trash unless you have a crappy screen inside a banjo bolt or added something.

Seafoam is a light petroleum distillate, naptha (i.e. mothballs), isopropyl alcohol, and water. It really serves no purpose in a diesel engine.

If you want to get the carbon out of the cylinders just get the engine up to operating temperature and give a it a few hard runs down the highway.

Seafoam is actually a very good product for gassers and dosnt hurt diesel either..
:ditto: i don't put it anywhere but in my oil.....every old gasser truck/jeep i've had, first thing i do before i change my oil in it is drop a can off in her, let her run for about 5-10min, shut her down, change the oil, filler her up, drive it for about 500 miles, change the oil again, then just do it every 3-5k....

did the same with my dodge when i got her and it's still runn'n fine....:thumbsup:

I agree it doesn't do much for diesels but it does work very well in gassers. :thumbsup: Use it in my wifes 06 Durango and my buddies truck and bayliner. It gave us all a noticeable difference. :thumbsup:

used to sell the stuff at carquest years ago. stuff works good in gas engines' fuel systems. i would pass on putting it in my cummins. its a fairlt strong solvent and reduces lubricity of diesel fuel.
i know 12 oz. in 35 gals of fuel aint much, but last thing a deisel system needs is a solvent.
2 stoke oil, or in diesel kleen if you need it, which you probly don't, is way better for the trucks we love so much.
