Seafoam homebrew?

Postby ShawnAgne » Sun Aug 01, 2021 5:42 am

Just happened to see mentioned somewhere about people coming up with homebrew Seafoam. Was just wondering if there is a general consensus on what the best formula is.

Thanks in advance.

I use seafoam right out of the can straight. No mixing.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

I could not say tractor when I was 2 years old so I called it Err Err.

I loved this tractor then and I still love it now.

Yep I agree with BigBill. I don't use it enough to try to make it myself. We know the real stuff works.

It's Naptha, and a bunch of other stuff, like diesel, but I would just buy it. There is a knock off version from Walmart and STP that are cheaper than seafoam. It's very similar. Maybe a slightly different concoction but the Walmart version is around $4.50 where seafoam is like $7. Berrymans is also good, not as good as seafoam and it's less than like $4 at Walmart.

The Walmart brand works pretty good.
