Sea Foam appears to be a corporation with many products. Which one should I use to prevent carburetor problems with the snowthrower and riding lawnmower? I always use gas free of ethanol grass Trimmers. I had a Stihl and it needed a new carburetor every spring until I gave it away. Now I’m hoping a Home Depot brand will be better.
Amazon.ca search finds 100,000 Sea Foam products. Locally, in automobile repair shops I see maybe a dozen. Which one to buy?

Available at any big box auto parts store. I buy it in gallon cans and refill a couple of the 16 oz cans.

If using ethanol free gas, I would just run the engine out of fuel and put it away for winter. But if you want to use seafoam, I just eyeball about a shot glass of seafoam per gallon of gas.

You can also take a gas can down to you local general aviation airport and get some 100LL avgas. This stuff has a 2 year shelf life.

I see you're in SoCal so there aren't many left.

So Seafoam for gasoline and Diesel engines is the product best for keeping my grass trimmer carburetor clean. Thank you!

Star Tron for anything gasoline.
Archoil for diesel.

Been using Seafoam for years. Great stabilizer but also cleaner.
