Well I guess when I empty this current bottle I will have to give 360* a try. I always have an open mind to find new products, you never know what you may find

So do you not use any stabilizer at all? I have a bunch of mowers,blowers, weedwackers etc that I have never had to clean the carbs and are hitting 8-10 yrs old. Maybe I will just stay with what has been working for me

No additives, I just try and run everything and keep the gas as fresh as possible. The one motorcycle I use avgas and it starts everytime.
Not sure what you mean by mowers and weedwhackers? Ha, just kidding.
I left all that stuff in chicago when we moved west. I just rake the rocks occasionally.

I use 1oz of Seafoam per gallon of gas. So, 5oz per gas can. It helps keep the gas fresh and clean out the carb and gas lines.
