I've used it in cars a couple times. In one it seemed to help, in the other I couldn't notice a difference (but there turned out to be another issue at hand). A lot of people swear by it, others swear it does nothing.

In bikes you use 1oz per gal of gas to the tank. Ive used it in tank and I guess it works. My carb and plugs are nice and clean.

I've used it in about half my fill ups since I bought my bike, used, earlier this year. Haven't noticed any difference, either way, but am hopeful that my carbs are staying cleaner...

Was planning on using it on my bike soon, but haven't. I've used in cars and performance wise can't tell much difference. If I took the motor apart it may be a different story.

I've used it in my bike, jetski, and lawnmower. You can buy it at wal-mart.

Use it in my bike and small engines. For cages I use B-12 Chemtool because it is a fraction the cost Seafoam.

I use it all the time...I usually add it to a tank about every third fillup. It is really good stuff.

I put some in my bike every season or two. I probably don't need to, but it makes me feel better.
