This is all from memory but here's how you want to do it (instructions are also on each can)

1) Gas tank method, ## of seafoam per gallons of gas. I feel like this is equivalent to running a fuel injector cleaner like Techron

2) In crankcase prior to oil change - I've never done this personally

3) Easiest way to soak the cylinders is to pour it VERY SLOWLY into the brake booster hose. Start up your jeep and pull the hose, your idle will sky rocket. As I recall, trickle the seafoam in until the engine starts chugging and idling roughly and kill the engine! The goal is to NOT hydrolock the engine. Let your engine sit for a good 10 minutes and reconnect the brake booster hose. Fire up the jeep and continue to circle your block, veiling your neighbors in a smokescreen like they've never seen before

i did the seafoam today and i did half a can in my gas and half a can in my brake booster... i guess i didnt put enough in brake booster because it smoked out the exhuast for 30 seconds while i was dripping it in the brake booster but after i turned it off and let it sit for 15 it didnt smoke at all.. I might try using water like someone mentioned.

I have used it on many vehicles through the brake booster hose and have had nothing but positive experiences with it. ever once in while i like to use Marvin's mystery oil in the crankcase just before I change the oil. I add it and let it idle for about 30 minutes.

I remember the first time i used seafoam through a break booster.... Thought my engine was destroyed with all the white smoke that poured out. It really smokes badly if you have lots of buildup. I noticed a 2 mpg improvement on my 97 k1500 chevy, which is signifigant to me. Maybe using water would have done the same, but I have no experience with that. Just know the seafoam worked as advertised, smoke and all. My new 98 wrangler has yet to have this done to it, but i might try the crankcase before my oil change to see if it helps. I have low miles though (60k), so I am not sure what to expect. I'll report back on this thread if I do it.

I used a half of bottle in my 2001 silverado when the 5.3 started lightly ticking, poured half a bottle in the crank case 100 miles before oil change, and half a bottle in the gas tank with about a quarter tank left. After all was said and done....ticking gone.

I used Seafoam in my 2000 Yamaha V-Star 1100 Classic.

I'd pour some directly into the fuel tank at every other fill-up.
I had the bike for 3 years. Seems to me that it ran smoother using the stuff.

I just used an entire can of seafoam in the tank. I got a 99 with 82k on the ticker and the gas gauge was always acting funny. When I start it on a hill, it would read empty for a couple miles then finally show the actual amount of gas. After the seafoam treatment, it stayed on the actual amount regardless of how I parked. Easy fix!

I did Seafoam for the first time today in my 99 Sahara with 96k miles. Warmed it up and put 1/3 of a bottle through the brake boost vacuum line and let it sit for about 5 minutes. Got some white smoke for about a block then I did not notice any more smoke after that. Not a lot of smoke came out. It does seem to have more power but that could just be the placebo effect. It ran good before Seafoam and still runs good.

Guys, I haven't tried adding it to my Jeep but I use Seafoam in a Rattle can every year to winterize my jet skis. I pull the plug wires, remove the spark plugs, spray some seafoam in the chamber and put the plugs back in. They sit for around 7-8 months and start right up.
