Question Sea Foam?

For those of you that use Sea Foam, how often do you guys use it? It says average 1oz per gallon, but do you guys put it in everytime you fill up or just periodically? I don't want to have to go through what I did last year with replacing the O ring in the carb due to ethanol erosion.

It only takes a month or two for ethanol to bond with water and settle to the bottom, so unless you're going through a tank of gas that often I recommend treating every tank.

I treat every fill-up THAT SITS IN THE TANK. Meaning if I'm on vacation say and I ride every day. I DO NOT treat every tank. I only treat last tank, assuming it will have some left and be left in the tank for the next trip... Savy?

It will hurt NOTHING to treat every tank.

I use star tron in all my fuel, every tank, but I have used sea foam on other rides when they act up, have bad gas in there, or carb needs cleaned out, etc. Sea Foam seems to cure a lot of ills...good stuff for sure!
