    I use it in all the gas for my lawnmowers, ATV's, chainsaw, weed wackers, etc.
    It helps the fuel last longer on gas powered equipment that do not get used that often and does a good job of keeping the carbs from gumming up.
    I also put it in my car before it gets stored in the winter.

    Yep, +1 here too. Been using it for years in all the engines fuel. I've soaked small engine carbs in the stuff. It works!

    if you decide to run it in your cylinders to soften carbon on the pistons or valves do it out side and be prepared for a lot of white smoke, it will look like your cars on fire with all the smoke.

    I put some in the gas tank then the rest I run through a spray container I fill with compressed air. Or you can dump the whole can in the tank. The empty can makes for a good oil catch can.

    Been using it for years with no problems and in most cases good results.

    What's better for dumping down the carb, sea foam or marvel mystery oil?

    If you dump a can in the tank does it still smoke a lot?
