No wonder you guys only get 38 mpg using that crap. It's not gasoline!
Isn't our gas pathetic enough without mixing more non-energy producing junk into it?
huh? I get mid-50's, and that's two up with hard bags and a tour pak! I've seen 62mpg out of my 900! The guys who get 38 get 38 because they lug the engine in town then do 90 on the freeway. Two things the 900 doesn't do efficiently!
I think my absolute WORST ever was mid 40's. That was on our honeymoon, dufflebags strapped to the bike, doing 85 on the freeway because I wanted to get to the next destination before dark and we had a few hundred miles to go, two up, etc.
And yes, the stuff works good
I've poured a little on a rag to clean carbon off of throttle bodies, I use it as a fuel stabilizer on stored vehicles, and I've used it in the crankcase of my car when the top end gets noisy. A guy at church had a jeep with a L.O.U.D. rod knock, dumped a can of seafoam in the crankcase, couple hundred miles later that stuck lifter got unstuck!
Don't knock it 'til ya try it! I don't use it every tank of gas or anything like that. But as a general purpose cleaner, fuel stabilizer, carbon-cleaner, it works well. I think the only reason people DON'T like it, is so many people DO like it so they assume it must be a sham or all in their head!
Still don't get your comment though. Did you think we were using seafoam INSTEAD of gasoline? Man THAT would get expensive quick! And I don't think people use it as a 'performance enhancer', if they do they are ill informed. But it does clean fuel injectors /carbs and reduces carbon buildup inside the engine (which can cause hotspots and pinging, even with higher octane fuels!) I had a Ford with a 302 in it that didn't like to idle, but if I dumped a can of seafoam in the tank once every few months (when it started to idle rough again) it would smooth right out, got everything cleaned out.
