Exactly........and even if it were only put in one tank.....it is still oil and will foul plugs. I have seen it done before.

Plus, it ain't cheap! There's NO WAY whatever benefit it might have had would pay for using it at that frequency.

Wow!

Why do people feel the need to dump crap into their gas and oil?
(I think it has something to do with the old "100MPH carburetor" myth, and a general sense of corporate-conspiracy directed paranoia.)

You mean 100 MPG carb? Even my leisurely Buick with a 2bbl carb will do 100 eventually.

My '88 Escort with a 1.9L CFI and 492K miles will too if it doesn't fly apart before it gets there. LOL

I just wonder what all that sea foam did to other parts like the pistons and valves???? From the looks of those plugs I bet they aren't very healthy either.
