Yeah...What Dan45t says about boats & bikes. However, a full-can of SeaFoam is quite a bit in a 6.6 gal GL tank...and even more in a 5.5 !I've used it in boats and bikes.
Thing is, it's not going to hurt anything, so if it doesn't fix the problem then you're only out the cost of a can of seafoam.
........................ # 2 mechanic here.............a fuel blender ?? Have never even heard that term in my life. Anyway, 400 kms/250K or so ?? Nice !!!The problem I have with aftermarket fuel additives (other than a stabilizer for storage) is my fuel blender (Top Tier) is already including additives (Techron): oxidation inhibitors, corrosion inhibitors, silver corrosion inhibitors, metal deactivators, demulsifiers, antiknock compounds, and deposit control additives. Specifically the Deposit Control Additives are tested for non-harm. Second, my fuel blender has no idea what aftermarket additive is being used and no idea what its contents are. It is possible one additive is cancelling the other so you end up with no additive. Third the aftermarket fuel additive is not ASTM tested for inclusion with the fuel (absence of negative attributes) so can affect the gasoline properties.
Anecdotally, I have a 1978 GL1000 with 400,000 km that has never had an additive other than fuel stabilizer and have no deposit issues. My regimen has been to follow the recommended service interval and use Top Tier fuel.

I am using the term "fuel blender" to indicate the blending process at the refinery but also to broadly define whoever is finishing the gasoline. I didn't want to say refiner since the fuel might be further blended after refinery ie terminal or splash blended at the station. In fact, by adding anything to the fuel, you are now the blender......................... # 2 mechanic here.............a fuel blender ?? Have never even heard that term in my life.
