I wondered because how some spoke of how it will make it smoke,didn't think they would want to use it all the time for that reason.
Mixed according to the can's instructions, it doesn't smoke. Pouring it "straight" from the can into the running engine DOES make it smoke... but, that's a heavy-duty cleaning exercise. Mixed as described on the can, I use it ALL the time for my yard equipment and such.

I'm another recent convert, read all the posts before, thought it was a bunch of crap. WRONG! A friend, a marine mechanic, gave me a part bottle. Weedwacker ran with choke on the last 5-6 years, less than 5 minutes with seafoam and the choke wasn't needed. Put it in an old chainsaw and gave it a couple pulls each day - after a few days it started. Went bought a bottle.

I have a few chain saws and weed eaters then are hard to start, or do not start at all.
I also have a weed eater that will only run with the choke on...

My question is where do I buy sea foam? So I can try it. After I try it it I will report back.

x2, got mine from advanced auto, made an improvement for the 2 stroke chainsaws, and prevented the black build up I kept getting in the bayous carb tunnel away, but I've noticed a purple build up in the carb bowl instead...

I have used it in an outboard motor with great results. The motor had set up for a while and would cut in and out when I would speed it up. After adding seafoam and running a tank of fuel through the motor it began running smooth. Never thought about using it in my atv.

the only way i would use sea foam is if i bought a brand new truck, 4 wheeler, car, chain saw, etc, and used it from day one. i dont think i would ever use it on something thats more then 1 year old. i would be afraid it would knock a big chunk of gunk loose and put it somewhere its not supposed to be and scrap my engine.
