Honda 2000 and Sea Foam

One of my eu2000's started surging in eco mode. I only use real gas and always drain the carb at the end of the season and I've never had any problems. We went tailgating this weekend and noticed the surge for the first time.
Today I poured a good shot of Sea Foam in the tank and let it run for about an hour in regular mode. When I went back and tried in eco mode again it was back to its old, quiet self.

Not sure if it's related or not but my Yamaha 2000 is really sensitive to its oil level, it will start surging if the oil is even a little low.

Sea Foam has been around a long time and I have used it for years. Sea Foam is one of the few "snake oils" that really do work, and works very well. Highly recommended!

It would have likely cleared up by itself without the SeaFoam. SeaFoam is just Naptha, oil and isopropyl alcohol. It is not a magic elixir.

What?? YES IT IS!! LOL

Actually, it is made up of:

25% Cleaner>Naphtha
60% Stabilizer>Kerosene
15% Oxygenate> Isopropyl Alcohol (common Rubbing Alcohol)

And I'd rather buy a can than try and mix all that together correctly.

Just don't use it in anything with O2 sensors. I know it says it is safe..what else are they going to say.

Their older MSDS listed the "Trade Secret" Ingredients as Naptha and Pale Oil. So many forums blasted them for it that they stopped publishing it!

If you really want a good cleaner, use something with PEA(Poly Ether Amine)in it. Techron is PEA among other brands.
