A worthy competitor for Seafoam...?

A local bike shop recently put me wise to a new fuel treatment. A forum search did not show it mentioned in any previous threads, so I thought I would bring it up here.

Seafoam is really good stuff, and I certainly don't mean to knock it, but this product I was introduced to is specifically formulated to solve problems resulting from alcohol/gasoline blends (i.e., when a bike is stored/unused for extended periods of time). Like seafoam, it is also a carb/injector cleaner and a fuel stabilizer.

You can read about this new formula at:

and

and/or

http://www.starbrite.com/whatsnew/Startron_Story_V2.pdf

The 8 ounce size is available in the sporting goods/boating section at Walmart stores.

I would be curious what your experiences are after trying this alternative fuel treatment. Do later post what you find....

Obligatory disclaimer: No, I don't work for the referenced parent company, or get a commission or kickback or any favors from any product sales (ditto for any relatives or friends, either).

Up here in Maine during the winter we have the problem of phase seperation with the ethenol/fuel mix. It can blow up snowmobiles where the ethenol and water can be detromental to 2 stroke engines where they have oil mixed fuel. It works awsome to keep the fuel from seperating and IMO is better then seafoam where it was formulated for the ethenol mixed fuels. See this thread for my test results.

I have just recently heard of starbrite but have not tested it yet.

I've heard of additives that claim they use nano technology to 'eat' the crap out of the fuel system, clean up the fuel, but don't hurt the O rings or gaskets. I can't remember the name of the product I saw, but it was $27 for 8oz.
