My Ford LGT (Kohler 301) that I plow the driveway with is quite the oil burner......I check the gas and fill the oil....Has gone through about 4 quarts since winter started. I took a shot today and added a 1/2 can of Restore engine treatment....Is it going to help?...Personally I dont think so, but thought I would take a poll as to what you guys think.

It does seem to run smoother since I added it

I hope that it does help Poncho. I don't know if I have ever used that brand. Quite a few years ago I had an old 58 Ford pickup that if you didn't add some type of oil treatment you couldn't see the end of the truck when you fired it up. Whatever I used at the time did indeed help. Keep us posted on your results.

It will make a difference if the rings are stuck. It wont fill in the gaps for wear in the rings, piston or valve guides.

I think you might notice a difference but like Mike said it won't help some areas. My HH120 in my MF12 uses oil and I will run it till it dies or put a diesel in it :D

Fellow I work with used it in his Astro van V6 with 200K +miles said it helped with burning oil. 4 quarts is a lot of oil to burn , how do you keep the plug from fouling ?

My old boss had a late 70's-early 80's Crown Vic Ford car. He used Restore in it every time he changed the oil from the day it was new. When I say every time he changed the oil, it was every 20-30K or so... Yes I said 30K Miles. The guy that bought it off him in the mid 90's (as my boss was retiring & moving to a living assistance community) decided to tear it down to see how much damage had been done by the oil change frequency. He stopped back in to tell my boss's son that it was the best looking engine he'd ever seen, everything was tight & less wear than any other engine he'd opened up with over 150K miles on it. Don't know if it'll work for your situation, but my old boss would tell you "Worked for me"

I don't think seafoam would help with burning oil. I know it will help clean sludge but it wouldn't help keep it from burning oil. Although one though would be is if the oil ring is stuck maybe the seafoam would help loosen it?

Mine smoked so bad, at times I couldn't see the front of the tractor. Glad that was an easy fix.
