MARTINSR I am waiting for a call back from a guy with some Granada brakes for the Falcon. The Scarebird ones would be great and a lot cheaper but they keep the same tiny wheel bearings that I would really like to see leave. So we will see.

I know people who said the exact same thing.

I'm right there with ya on Seafoam........

496CHEVY3100 I use the sea foam in all my vehicles that will be sitting for a while,,Exept my outboard motors,,i have burned a piston in 2 Mercury engines,and the Bass club has had about 12 engines fail just after using seafoam all with burned pistons one member had a new Yamaha 250 that lost a piston and Yamaha would NOT warranty it @ a cost of almost 17k just the engine,
because of the addative,,could be a coincidence ,But ///..I swiched back tp Stabil,,some are trying Lucas with good results,

As mentioned might not be the Seafoam but after 2 engines I am not takin a chance, I iust got my 150 Black Max mounted last night,got to get it cleaned up and try it out this weekend

believe it or not.. that is exactly how it is designed to work. but you will find out that your 2011 flex fuel silverado.. has a stainless steel fuel system so ethanol is not an issue. ethanol has less BTU than gasoline so it takes more ethanol to do the same job as gasoline.

the issue is E85 stretches the crude oil reserves. (the real reason is it gives ADM a cheep sources of high fructose corn syrup to haul away from ethanol producers as a biproduct)

1971BB427 I just recently replaced all the rubber hose in my fuel system on my Austin gasser. Only 5 years old, and the ethanol mix gas had softened the rubber to the point I found a huge puddle of gas under the car recently! I only have short pieces of hose here and there for isolation, or maintenance, so it was easy to replace. But it got me wondering how often I'll have to do this now?
I replaced the hose with the stiffer fuel injection rated hose, which is a lot more expensive, but hopefully lasts longer.

almost always get the ethanol free gas now at #3.25/gal ($1 more than the other) just because my truck never gets driven. add Heat to your tank too. stay away from ethanol if you can help it.
I add Sea Foam to all the engines with carbs around here, I mean everything, chain saw, weed trimmer, lawn tractor, cars, etc. Yeah the non-oxy gas is more expensive, but it doesn't cause all the issues of the ethanol crap and end up costing $$$ to repair the equipment.
