My four wheeler wouldn't run at high rpm last spring after it sat most of the winter. I put a full can of seafoam in the gas (much more than the label calls for). I puttered around with it for a week or two and put around 15 hours on it, then it came to life. I have been adding about a 1/4 can of seafoam every time I fill it up. I just poured a can in the fuel on a 66 F600 I just bought that idles great but takes some coxing to get up to speed...we shall see.

The effects of Seafoam is easier to see in small motors like 4wheelers than in big tractors or trucks. The carbs are just so much smaller that they gum up easier. Then when they are gummed up, its hard to get the treated fuel to flow to the needed spots to clean them up.

With additives like Seafoam, you either like it or hate it. I like it and use it because it simply works. I do cheat though and mix my own, tons cheaper that way. Just google for the ingredients.

Try using Marvel Mystery Oil. I have had excellent results with it over the years. Four Oz. to twenty gallons of fuel, leave out one quart of oil and add one quart of MMO on oil changes.

If it works for you you could get mineral oil which is what MMO is, and save a lot of money.
