But, maybe I'm just trying to solve a non-problem .


From what I've heard, most tuners who use widebands to tune cars, have to replace them all the time because of lead fuels and additives in fuels.

I assume the VX one stands up to the winter fuel additives pretty well since they seem to still last at least 100k miles in this area even with these "blended" fuels. I've actually never heard of an anti-additive, additive... I don't enough cars out there come with $400 o2 to have the demand for that yet.


On the never-ending quest for better gas mileage...

ive heard to never use it on an engine with a wideband because it can easily fail the sensor.

ive also heard that you are supposed to change the oil directly after using the seafoam because it will mix with the oil and decrease the viscosity like crazy, it has been decribed as similar to adding water to the oil, coincidence?

anyways, these are just some things ive heard when using seafoam, but it seems that you guys have had some good results
lol it says you can put in directly in the crankcase...which is what i did, ran it for 200-300 miles and then changed the oil and it came out black!
