    Seafoam performs the same duties as Marine Stabil. There is no reason to run both unless you want to. Here is information directly from their site. It stabilizes fuel for up to 2 years and controls moisture buildup. I run a whole can of it every fill up. Got the seafoam in a case from amazon and only paid about 6 a can for it. Its some good stuff!!!Name:  uploadfromtaptalk1389379804200.jpg

    Mike, I wouldn't even think of running anything gas powered with out it. Lawnmower,chain saw, snow blower, they all get it. Everything but the truck.
    Changed the head gaskets on the outboard and the heads and cylinders were shiny clean. My mechanic said thats the way I like to see them. I have used it for years now.

    I have wondered the same.

    I have a 2 stroke Yamaha 90 horse on my boat. I am definitely not a mechanic. I was using Yamaha Ring Free, Stabil, and Seafoam. My boat mechanic said to just use Stabil. So that's what I do and have not had any problems. I did put on a fuel/water separator and put it on myself....not very hard to do. I do use gas with ethanol, since ethanol free gas is hard to find around here.

    Don't know if this helps...

    I have read that and heard all that Handi. But I have been useing bothe products for y ears and I just think Stabil does a better job of stabilizing fuel and Seafoam does a better job of cleaning. Anyway thats what works for me. I use a lot of each here on the farm.

    I have been using just Sea Foam in all my motors every since this area went to all E-10 at the stations. Zero problems and this has been over 15 years now.

    It cant hurt to use both but I dont think its necessary. Only time will tell but im going on 18 months of only seafoam and my motor has never ran or acted better. This was after I had my fuel line replaced and carbs cleaned from ethanol damage over a 6 year period but the gas was not properly treated over that period. I do use a whole can everytime I fill up and that is usually only 10 to 12 gallons but they say you cant use to much of either the seafoam or stabil.

    Sea foam is a great product, I use it in my lawnmower, leaf blower and chainsaws. For what it's worth my marine service center does not recommend it for EFI motors he said it would breakdown the o-rings over time. Best to use stable to treat fuel.

    Wigglewart, all the people here on c.com have taught an old dog a new trick. I am willing to give it a try in my own tractor, leaf blower, trimmer and also in the boat motor. They all have to perform better than they did last year in spite of all new spark plugs. Again, I thank all of you who posted on this thread to advise and help the old man out.
