Sea Foam Motor Treatment
Why It Works
Sea Foam is a safe and versatile additive to gasoline, ethanol and diesel fuels. It can be added to fuel, oil or added directly into the combustion chamber on 2-cycle, 4-cycle, rotary engines. For diesel, to be used in engine fuel and oil systems only. Sea Foam is a petroleum blended product, so it is as safe for seals, o-rings, sensors and other fuel system and engine components as the fuel or motor oil that runs the engine. Sea Foam contains NO harsh chemical detergents. All types of engines (2 & 4 cycle, rotary and diesel engines) suffer from the problems described below, all of which are addressed by Sea Foam.
- Old petroleum residue (gum and varnish) buildup. All fuels and engine oils leave behind residue deposits that accumulate over time. In the crank case, this residue builds up around lifters and rings, preventing them from functioning properly. In the fuel system, residue builds up in the injectors or carburetor jets, on the tops of pistons and on the backs of intake valves. Residue in the exhaust adheres to this and forms deposits. THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE RESIDUE IN YOUR CRANK CASE AND THE RESIDUE IN YOUR FUEL SYSTEM. IT IS ALL PETROLEUM VARNISH. Sea Foam helps slowly and safely re-liquefy this varnish so contaminants and deposits can be safely cleaned out of the systems as the engine is operated.
- Lack of lubrication. This can occur in the fuel system as the result of dry fuel additives such as ethanol that actually remove lubrication from the engine components. In the crank case, varnish buildup around the valve train can prevent the oil from properly circulating and lubricating.
- Moisture: Fuel can absorb moisture from the atmosphere and from condensation – even more so with the addition of ethanol. Sea Foam solubilizes small amounts of water in fuel, allowing the moisture to harmlessly burn through the engine.
By addressing these three key factors that produce premature engine wear and cause many common drivability problems, Sea Foam can be used by professionals and do-it-yourselfers alike to help safely eliminate many contamination and lubrication related performance problems and help prolong the life of an engine. A clean, dry and well lubricated engine will run smoother and more efficiently.
