    Hi,

    Tried a search, but nothing came up regarding my question.

    I would like to do a Seafoam-like motor decarbonizing that I've read about here on the 3F in my 62. However, I live in Costa Rica and haven't seen this product anywhere.

    So... does anyone know what Seafoam really consists of? I'm thinking, maybe I can get one or more of the ingredients and make my own?

    Is this nuts?

    Thanks,
    Jason

    Snorider,

    Thanks. Found the data on their website. Pale oil, Isopropyl alcohol and Naptha.
    Looks like I have some shopping to do. Then some mixing.




    Stinky,

    This thread includes a post that says seafoam looks like/smells like kerosene.

    Does it really? Is kerosene the base?

    Thanks,
    Jason

    I have no idea if kerosene is the base, I was just in the 80 section when I saw that posted. You might post to that thread and see what happens...
