I noticed last week when I went to buy some SeaFoam that it was $11 for a 16 ounce can.  I used to get a quart for $6.99.   

I've went back to using Sta-Bil.  Sta-Bil isn't any cheaper to buy but it goes farther per bottle.

Seafoam is overrated and overpriced. It is just alcohol, naptha (lighter fluid) and a light oil. What are you trying to accomplish?

Since I started using Seafoam, I haven't had any fuel related issues. So I'll spend the $ to keep using it!

Rick: 

 

I have been using Berrymans  B-12 Chemtool. I buy it at Walmart for just under $3.00 a can and it contains toluene which the big boys use in pro paint jobs or so I have been told.

 I first came across it an auto parts store, went to get a carb. cleaner and ended up with this and have been using it ever since. I mix 1-2 oz.  in every gallons of gasoline for the tractor and it has worked good as far as I know for I have not had any related problems.  It appears to be a real good paint remover.

 

 I also had started out using Seafoam but I made the switch.

I like Chemtool as well. I am not saying Seafoam doesn't work, just that there are better or cheaper options.

Just a bit of trivia concerning toluene. While in munitions in the USAF I learned the words that TNT stand for, tri-nitro-toluene.

I buy Seafoam by the gallon.  Usually around $50/gallon, lasts quite a while, but it'll keep!  ~~  Lowell

I do the same Lowell.  I paid $52.oo for the last gallon just this week at an auto parts store.  I put it in all the gas, even in the truck.

 

I recently decided to switch to non ethanol for the small engines.  It was fifty cents more a gallon for 91 octane.

I get Seafoam out of Dollar General for about $6 a can.  I've found Dollar General, at least around here, has some good deals on consumables I use in the shop.
