SeaFoam is a gas additive which gets burned with the gas. Dilution 
instructions are on the bottle. IIRC, 1 bottle will do 1-2 of our 10 
gallon tanks. It's not something you need to do regularly.

It was explained to me that you use Sta-Bil to keep gas from gumming 
up in storage, but you use SeaFoam if you forgot to use Sta-Bil or if 
the storage was for so long that the gas gummed up anyway.

I don't know how it works, and I've not tried it extensively enough 
to know how effective it really is. I assume it has some sort of 
solvent effect on the gum. It's just something that was recommended 
to me by people I trust.
