I have read all the stuff on this but my question is. How long can you leave this stuff in if you cant drive the 150-200 miles needed to get a good cleaning. I drive about 70-80 miles a week. A lot of it is sitting in traffic. How long should i leave this stuff in here if i cant hit the 150-200 miles that quickly. Thanks.

You cn also suck it through a vacume hose to clean the top end of carbon and other crab that has built up.

he is referring to adding to seafoam to the oil guys, and even though your not hitting that 200 miles or whatever you are still running the engine and the seafoam is circulating no matter what and it will clean what is in there. I ran it in my oil for about 175ish miles before I got it changed and it came out black as hell on a 40k mile motor. if you drive those 70-80 miles per wekk I would say drive it all week and then maybe the weekend a little driving and change it before the next work week starts. your going to be surprised how much this seafoam actually helps after doing it. im going to seafoam my 63 when I get home and that should be an interesting ride none the less.

Thanks, I have already done the top end part of it and was just wondering about the oil. I will put it in this sunday and run it all week to see how many mile i can put on it. Im curious to see how dark it will come out.

its good to change it between 200-500 miles, its a different consistancy then your oil and it will break it down.....like its supposed to....but youll notice a good bit of sludge come out
