Seafoam engine cleaner - oil change question

I was going to add it to my gas, crankcase and thru my brake booster. I just had an oil change yesterday though. Will it cause me any problems if I add it to the oil now but don't change the oil until my next 3,000 mile maintenance? Or do you need to always change the oil regardless after adding it?

Personally, I'd change it after 50-100 miles in the crank case. You don't want your oil being thinned out too long or you risk a spun bearing.

I wouldn't use it till the time to change it out, it's not good to run it with the seafoam in it for that long..

We sell ton's of it in our shop. If you follow the instructions, 1 oz per qt, you will be fine. That being said I've only added it to the crankcases with specific oil problems (foam, noisy lifter or gumming up on dipstick or fill cap). It works great thru a vacuum port. Just be ready for a lot of smoke.

To be safe, since this is the first time I'm doing it to this Jeep, I'll wait and do it before my next oil change.
