How soon after do you change the oil? And I assume your not draining any oil out correct?

if I'm not mistaken instructions said to change the oil between 30-300 miles after the treatment

Just did it today for the 2nd time and I love this shiz. I used a full can in the gas tank and about half a can in the vacuum line. Instantly gave me about 1 mpg back. Woot go sea foam!!!

Re: seafoam treatment

I do mine every two months or so(in the engine- vac line). If your engine isnt really gunked up you can leave it in the oil. I do it in my xj,it helps keep the lifters quieter. But if its cruddy you have to change it so anything broken loose can be removed before it can clog something.

Re: seafoam treatment

I don't know if I'll be comfortable with leaving it in the oil like that
