seafoam by the gallon?

hey, anyone here ever buy seafoam by the gallon? I was looking around for seafoam and found out that Advance Auto Parts sells it by the gallon. how long does seafoam last once you open the can? could one use it up before it went bad? for me I could use it up really fast (three bikes, four cars, chainsaw, lawn mower and snow thrower)

it would come out to be about $7.49 a pint vs. $9.55. so what does everyone think? deal or no deal?

I think Fergy "the seafoam junkie" should be responding to this thread soon...

2004 Kawasaki Vulcan 750 "Serenity"
Changed Oil/Filter and Coolant
Installed Big Crank ETX15L Battery w/charger hookups
Duct-taped retention safety for toolbox door
New OEM clutch lever replaced after first tipover
Plan on: changing brake fluid, coastering, lubing splines, relocating R/R, new saddlebags, highway pegs, windshield.
Scratch that...make that getting her ready for sale. Nope, scratch THAT! I'm keeping her!

All it says on the Seafoam website is that it will stabilize fuel for 2 years, but nothing on how long it can be stored??

Not every Walmart sells it. I can get it in Wal Mart in PA but not in Maryland, must be a state law thing. When I can find it Wal Mart has always been cheapest.

Wal Mart's in Virginia carry a line of motorcycle cleaning gear but not the ones in Maryland.

I wouldn't hesitate to buy a gallon if I could find it, it won't sit on the shelf long enough to go bad. We put 4,000 miles on our bikes in the last 10 months.
