In your all`s opinion whitch is better seafoam or Lucas?? Just put an new engine in my `88 and i need to rebuild the carb. but dont have time, So I am trying to just clean it up a little inside. Or if anyone has any other Ideas i am game. Thanks T.
I've been telling Jeep forum people for a very long time, that if one wants to put in a fuel additive... just copy the ingredients in a fuel additive! Huh?
I always get the typical "that's stupid" "you're crazy", "that stuff is dangerous" ect. ect.
The fact of the matter is, they used to list all the common ingredients on the label. Now all they usually do is say "petroleum distillates". But years ago the labels I read were as follows.
STP fuel additive: mineral spirits
STP heavy duty fuel addivitve: mineral spirits/naptha
STP heavy duty fuel cleaner: methyl ethyl ketone or more commonly know as MEK. http://www.devileye.net/catalog/meta..._additive.html
I never saw acetone, but I'm sure it can add some of the same properties to fuel. I use MEK every once in awhile. It is not quite as hard on plastics as acetone is. And like was said above... use in small amounts. I might do a half pint per tank.
Ok... now that I've once again stirred the pot, I'll wait for all the flames.

I'm just gullible enough to believe you Common sense isn't very common sad to say.
But you did bring up a thought. How does the plastic gas tank in the jeep handle this stuff? I'm going on the same logic as gasoline and acetone are both strong solvents and there for it should have no detrimental problems.
Giggity, I went and looked at the link, Good info. But nothing about it helping clean the internals of the carb. But I will deff. try it for the mileage angle. Thanks can always use better gas mileage.
