Author Topic:   Sea Foam or Stabil?

I'm about to winterize 2 marine engines (one is an I/O, the other is a 70 HP Evinrude, older vintage). I've talked to several people who swear that if Sea Foam is added to the gasoline, Stabil is not necessary. Not wanting carbs to gum up over the 5 month layup in Minnesota, what is "best practice" for gasoline stabilization?

Seafoam is added to remove carbon deposits in the engine.

Stabil will "Stabilize" your gasoline so it does not turn to varnish-gum.

It is best to SPRAY seafoam or OMC power tuner into the throats of the carb.if applicable. Intructions on can.

Take it for a spin to blow off the carbon.

Then winterize your gas buy putting stabil in the gas. see Jim's article on wimtererzation.
They are not the same animal.
