x2 the kind that goes in the gas... If you are using it to remove carbon from the head either find a vacuum line if applicable or put it into a spray bottle, hold the throttle open a bit and spray like mad, spray a lot into there, and when the engine wants to die out shut it off. Let it sit 5-10 min, fire it up and go for a ride, beat on it a little bit until it stops smoking white stuff.

Sea Foam is great stuff but remember, More is NOT Better!! I bought a Yam Warrior off a guy awhile back who had put an entire can of SF in his gas tank...he said it ran great for a few minutes then went boom.

What it caused by putting too much SF was a massive thinning out of top end lubrication. So for him it made the exhaust valve freeze up which resulted in needing a new head and piston.

x2! When I say use a lot, only when your spraying it into the intake to clean the carbon from the piston and valves. If your using it in the fuel system, no more than 3-4 oz per gallon. 2oz to maintain per gallon afterwards.
