You are all too smart for me. You lost me at Sea Foam.

Just a noob with a D21.

Yeah. But it's a NICE D21.

Sea Foam is a dumb name (it's not foam and it's not made of seawater) for an additive. You can put it in your oil, or in your gas tank. Supposedly does magic things or whatever. I've used it a couple of times in the fuel. Never noticed much difference.

Im pretty sure the reason its called sea foam is the fact that is originally designed for outboards and generally sea going motors.

Damn it. I KNEW there was a reason.

They should call it Magic Stuff That Helps Your Motor and Fuel System. Truth is, you have to watch the fuel additives these days with hardbodies. You are tossing 21st century tech into an old truck. The only reliable additives (my opinion only) are those that improve lubrication. I swear by Lucas. Rislone for fifty miles (drain two quarts oil, add two Rislone) before an oil change is another one I trust.

Have no illusions. Lucas is GOD. Rislone is the Virgin Mary. Well, she supports Rislone anyway...I think.
