Seafoam infromation

I have been reading conterviosy on the seafoam and I wrote the company.
this is the reply I recieved.
I also have more infromation on this subject that was sent to me as well. pdf files. I will try and add them.
all this infromation can be found on there websight at www.seafoamsales.com
Here are the simple facts:

Sea Foam is a blend of refined petroleum oils designed to clean, dry moisture and lubricate. NONE ARE CHEMICALS!

1. Pale oil is the MOST EXPENSIVE of the light oils available because it is very high temperature resistant and a quality lubricant. It is NOT waste! It is our basic protecting oil that is also a penetrating oil. Not a lite component, will not evaporate. Assures that Sea Foam will not affect lubricating properties of engine oils, other lubricants.

2. Our cleaner is an oil product developed to reduce old oil residues back to liquid safely. It is considered a "Lite" component, which means it is combustible/volatile an in the open air, will evaporate.

3. Here is where he made his biggest mistake. Our moisture drier is NOT an alcohol, not an emulsifier or suspender of moisture. The petroleum oil moisture drying oil we use was developed to dry moisture from FABRIC in the 1930's by Sinclair Oil company. It is widely used today to SAFELY quickly dry fabrics and other materials without damage during manufacturing. It is a lite component, and when exposed to any atmosphere will evaporate, taking moisture with it!
Our moisture drier makes MOISTURE BACK INTO HYDROGEN & OXYGEN, eliminates it from fuels and oils, SAFELY!

These Petroleum oil products are specifically blended by PATENTED FORMULA quantities, using a specific method to become the SEA FOAM everyone LOVES!

I am attaching some Technical Bulletins, READ THEM!

Most Important is proper application. That is where one should have the proper background or training. Sea Foam is not liable for the mis application of its product, all liability falls to the end user! IN OTHER WORDS, IF IN DOUBT ABOUT A PROCEDURE, GET PROPERLY INFORMED FIRST!

Thanks for coming to the SOURCE!

Re: Seafoam infromation

Sea Foam Amounts in Fuel

4 Cycle Type Engines
Diesel
Rotary (Wankel)
2 Cycle type Engines


Sea Foam Products
recommends an average of 1 ounce Sea Foam Motor Treatment to each gallon of Gasoline (including 10% & 15% ethanol) and Diesel fuel (including low sulfur & Ultra Low Sulfur blends) including any vehicle or system FACTORY DESIGNED for E-85 fuel.

Parameters are: 1 16 ounce can of Sea Foam Motor Treatment to a MINIMUM of 8 gallons of fuel, Maximum 25 gallons fuel to a 16 ounce can for maintenance. Follow the instructions above for OIL INJECTED engines also. (NO Sea Foam Motor Treatment ever goes into the oil reserve tank for oil injection).

***For all gas/oil mixed fuels (2 cycle) and E-85 Ethanol to be used in systems NOT specifically factory designed for E-85 fuels, DOUBLE the amount of Sea Foam Motor Treatment used per gallon.

Sea Foam Motor Treatment
is blended OIL, and will not run a gasoline, Gas/oil mix or Ethanol engine without introducing HYDROCARBONS (gasoline) to the mixture at a minimum 50%.

Fuel injector cleaning machines use Sea Foam Motor Treatment as their safe Cleaning agent mixed with gasoline at a ratio of 50% Gasoline & 50% Sea Foam Motor Treatment.

Re: Seafoam infromation

Ethanol Fuel & Using Sea Foam Motor Treatment
Technical Services Department-Sea Foam Sales Company

Sea Foam Motor Treatment is a unique 100% pure petroleum oil product, developed for solving specific concerns that are common to gasoline, gas/oil mixed fuels & diesel fuels used in all types and styles of 2 cycle, 4 cycle and diesel engines. These engines are in common use today in all automotive, truck, fleet, industrial, agricultural, specialty industries and small engine applications.

When Sea Foam Motor Treatment is added at 1 ounce per gallon to commonly available Ethanol 10% & 15 % fuels as recommended, Sea Foam:

*Adds lubrication for upper cylinders and vital fuel system components
*Dries moisture and works as an anti-gel
*Cleans fuel system residue
*Stabilizes fuel for up to 2 years or more
*Cleans carbon deposits from pistons, heads & valves as the engine is run

Sea Foam has been used in Ethanol fuels (10%, 15% and most recently E-85) successfully since initial introduction into the marketplace during the 1990s on a limited basis. As these "New" Ethanol fuels become more widely available nationwide, questions from distributors, retailers and consumers concerning Ethanol and the use of Sea Foam Motor Treatment in Ethanol fuels has arisen.

Sea Foam Motor Treatment works as well for its intended purposes in Ethanol blended fuels as it does in fuels in which Sea Foam has been so successfully doing its job since its introduction to the aftermarket industry in 1940. An average one ounce Sea Foam per gallon of Fuel is recommended in gasoline and in 10% & 15% Ethanol blends.

There are unique advantages to using Sea Foam Motor Treatment in Ethanol fuels:

Sea Foam is oil. Ethanol is very dry and can be harsh on exposed surfaces & components that require the lubricity available by using Sea Foam.
Sea Foam is moisture drier. Ethanol absorbs moisture which needs to be removed from the Ethanol. Sea Foam dries moisture.
Sea Foam is a fuel residue and carbon cleaner. Ethanol leaves deposits which still need to be cleaned.
Ethanol deteriorates as fast as non-ethanol fuel, the need to stabilize remains.
Ethanol burns faster, hotter, & makes less power than blended ethanol gasoline by about 18%. The need to slow down the burn in the cylinder by adding Sea Foams exclusive high temperature/low sulfur oil formula helps reduce damage caused by pre ignition and detonation.

Sea Foam recommends 2 ounces of Sea Foam per gallon of E-85 blended fuel for moisture control and added lubrication because of E-85s MINIMUM 70% ethanol content. (Minnesota labels E-85 as MINIMUM 70% Ethanol content, or more)

Re: Seafoam infromation

Sea Foam Motor Treatment used in Crankcase oil
All Gasoline and Diesel, Rotary style engines
Sea Foam Motor Treatment may be used in an oil crankcase 2 separate ways, depending on your needs and expectations.
Sea Foam Motor Treatment is most commonly used as a pre service old oil residue cleaner and moisture drier, and is also used as an after service additive.
1. As a pre service cleaner for old oil residue, sticky rings or valve train noise,
pour 1 ounces of Sea Foam Motor Treatment into the engine oil crankcase for EACH quart of oil capacity including filter. (Diesels use 1 pint to 4 gallons of oil, please) Drive a MINIMUM of 30 minutes/miles, MAXIMUM 100 miles, then do your oil change service (LOF). This begins the process of safely/slowly re liquefying the old oil residue so contaminants may flow and be filtered. This also makes your old oil dirtier, quickly, so a LOF service is necessary when the oil gets dirty. (LOF = Lube oil & Filter service).
2. As an after service additive into fresh oil, nearly fresh oil, or oil (used condition) that is NOT ready to be changed (by mileage), put the same amount of Sea Foam Motor Treatment into the crankcase as described above, then SELF SET a program to MONITOR your oil for color and clarity on a mileage, timed, or event basis (like every time you add fuel, etc.) to determine when an oil service is necessary. (LOF)
Sea Foam Motor Treatment will safely and slowly re liquefy old oil residue, This will make your oil need changing BEFORE your normal scheduled LOF service. Only your monitoring of the oil for color and clarity can tell when it is time to do LOF - oil change service, or 3,000 miles, whichever comes first.
Check your oil and monitor its color & clarity to determine need for LOF service!
Change your oil when it gets dirty!

Re: Seafoam infromation

Sea Foam Uses in Fuels
Sea Foam Motor Treatment #s SF-16 (16 ounce), SF-128 (gallon container) and
SF-55 (a 55 gallon drum) is used as a fuel additive in Gasoline, Ethanol Blends, Gas/oil mixes & Diesel fuels. This includes all brands and qualities of available fuels.
When added to these fuels, Sea Foam Motor Treatment was specifically designed to Safely do five (5) simple tasks for you. They are:
Sea Foam Motor Treatment is a 100% blended petroleum product. That means Sea Foam is OIL, so adding Sea Foam to ANY fuel, adds lubricity for upper cylinders, fuel pumps, and related fuel system components. Most fuels lack lubrication, Advantage: "Sea Foam".
2. Sea Foam Motor Treatment contains an oil component that dries fuel system moisture. Moisture breaks down into its basic components of hydrogen and oxygen when Sea Foam Motor Treatment is added to any of the above listed fuels, allowing Sea Foam Motor Treatment to help eliminate problems caused by moisture, like diesel fuel gelling and poor run .Advantage: "Sea Foam".

Sea Foam Motor Treatment contains an oil based high detergent fuel residue cleaner. Using Sea Foam Motor Treatment in your fuel system makes that old fuel residue safely back into liquid. Moisture becomes a "non issue" and allows contaminants to be filtered, as engineered by the manufacturer.
Advantage: "Sea Foam".
Sea Foam Motor Treatments exclusive formula is blended specifically to clean carbon out of the engine as the engine is run. This is accomplished by our cleaning oil formula eliminating old sticky oil residue that holds carbon and allowing that carbon to flow out of the engine dust particle by dust particle. Advantage: "Sea Foam".
5. Sea Foam Motor Treatment adds volatility to fuel and slows down the rate at which that fuel looses its ability to properly burn. When added to fuel and the fuel is in properly sealed containers or fuel systems, Sea Foam Motor Treatment is a fuel stabilizer for up to 2 years. Always run the engine for a long enough period of time to assure the entire system is protected.
Advantage: "Sea Foam".
