    We had a serious hail storm in South Texas and rain got into my brother's Miata gas tank (gas cap is on top of rear panel sitting flat). It would start but die at stops so he added some sea foam and that took care of the problem.

    Paul,to take this a step further,can I put a bit of Seafoam in the crankcase prior to oil change like I do in my car?I usually put it in about 25 miles or so before the oil change.TIA
    As an aside,BITOG is an excellent site for all things oil related.
    I've been a Techron user since I first heard about it.And Seafoan user about 10 years or so.I still use both regularly.

    But, if I had symptoms of a clogged injector while on the road I would dose the fuel and rely on the oil filter to catch any carbon particles. But prefer to change oil afterwards if possible.

    Seafoam goes well on your cherios in the morning before you head out for a ride. Then just pour the remainder into the tank.
    No ill effects at all!

    Honestly, there's a sucker born every minute!
