RED LINE GAS CLEANER or SEA FOAM for Motorcycles

I found this thread on the Alberta Lone Wolves website to be interesting.
http://www.ablonewolves.com/apps/for...or-motorcycles

From past experience it seems you can't read a link to the site without joining, so I will also copy and paste it here.

HOBO introduces a new-to-me product called Forté Fuel System Cleaner in the second post.

Seafoam: It's a version of probably the Oldest OldSchool "Carb Cleaner", Countryboy/farmer homebrew going back to Model T era, at least.It's made of *Rubbing Alcohol---Most all gas nowdays already has Alcohol in it at MUCH higher concentration

*Jet Fuel/Kerosine/Diesel ,something like JP5. The Crude Crack from Heavy-to-Light goes Diesel thru a few grades>the Napthas>Natural Gas. So It's a Immediate Ancestor of....Gasoline. *Naptha....One Name for Naptha is STRAIGHT RUN GASOLINE

It's Raw Gasoline...Nuff Said 'bout that. Any of that sound FOREIGN or Off-The-Wall to be adding to your fuel??

If it was gonna hurt anything,we'd know by now. Heck,if it was Harmful,Grampa woulda never made it to the dance to court Grandma---and we wouldn't even Be Here,lol

......................................…

REDLINE SI1 is more/less the same stuff with one important distinction.

It's about 50% PEA>PolyEtherAmine That's a modern,high-tech engineered CLEANER.

As far as CONCERNS about Damaging anything---Here's what's important to realize about PEA's.

Several Major Mfgr's got together a while back and created THEIR OWN Standard for GASOLINE and pissed off API real bad.

API=American Petroleum Institute---"GAS GOD"

Car Makers said,".. this is what WE want in our Engines,

NOT what YOU wanna give us & expect us to Make OUR Engines fit Y'ALL's Gas".

They call it TOP TIER Gasoline.

The main point of it is QUALITY,not necessarily Power,Economy,etc,etc.

It's intended to be the BEST Possible Gasoline in terms of keeping the Engine and Fuel System in the Best Condition that a gasoline possibly can.

(Within practical,realistic limits)

The FIRST Gasoline maker to Meet the TOP TIER Specs,,and make it available was Chevron.

Chevron achieved that distinctive milestone by Inventing and Including their product TECHRON in their gasoline.

So TECHRON is what makes the Gasoline TOP TIER>"Best" Gasoline Possible to keep Engine/Fuel Sys in Best Possible Condition.

TECHRON is a Chemical called PEA-PolyEtherAmine.

Redline SI1 is not likely to be harmful in any way due to being Highly Concentrated "Top Tier" Cleaner.

Forté Fuel System Cleaner improves fuel efficiency in gas engines, cleans the fuel system and removes moisture from fuel tanks to prevent corrosion.

Benefits

Removes intake valve deposits and helps reduce harmful emissions.

Reduces moisture from fuel tanks by emulsifying water into microscopic droplets. These droplets are then purged through the exhaust system.

Optimizes injector spray pattern by dissolving fuel varnish build up on the injector tips.

Directions

To maximize benefits add contents to the fuel tank every 10,000 km. Use 1 litre for every 200 litres of fuel.

Forte is recognized by 75% of the automotive dealerships across Canada.

I'm not afraid of trying something new... But I do know from years of experiance that SeaFoam does what I need it to do.

The question here then really only boils down to price...

How much does the other stuff cost to use if I only treat my gas once a month?

I have been happy with Seafoam in my bike too KM, since learning about it on this board 4 years go. Just found the info about the different products interesting.

The Redline SI1 MSRP is $10.95 for a 15 oz bottle into a car tank for a neglected vehicle, or which will treat 100 gallons of gas in a maintenance dosage according to this link.

(They also sell a motorcycle quick cleanup sized bottle for $5.49. Use one 4 oz bottle poured into a full tank of gas. Cost is about 50% higher buying in this smaller bottle.)

I should add that ....I'm not sure if its available in Canada...but here you can buy "Techron" in small bottles to add to your gas.

I think unless you're having problems there's no reason to get overly concerned with adding crap to your fuel....and this includes SeaFoam. This might be different of course if your bike sits for days/weeks or the gas in your area seems crappy.

Ive heard of "Forte" products before, and never a negative review. I think we used the redline on our logging machines when I was in the Adirondacks (as a diesel fuel additive). I believe that would make it older than SeaFoam.

Wish ya didnt need Facebook to log onto so many sites nowadays. That bites. But them Lone Wolves wouldnt like me much anyway since Im a 1%er. I just wanted to say "hey", and check them patches they got.

We can still get the Techron here in Idaho at Wally World.
I have heard of the Redline products, but I have never used them. I use Seafoam about every 5th or 6th tankful of gas here to help keep the crud out of my carbs. Just a couple of capfulls right before I fill the tank. Seems to help a bit.
