Can you use Sea Foam Motor Treatment in a turbo engine? [SOLVED]

I have a 2016 Honda Civic 1.5L turbo engine. Is it safe to add Sea Foam to the tank? Is it safe for the turbo engine?

That’s the ideal first question Tas. Yes, Sea Foam is safe to use in ANY gas or diesel engine fuel, including any engine with a turbo.

My question is can you add Sea Foam to your oil if you have a turbo? Adding to your gas wouldn’t make a difference but wondering if different in oil for a turbo?

Hi Dillan. It will work great in the oil of a turbo engine. Important for cleaning bearing surfaces!

Can you put Sea Foam in the vacuum hose of a turbo car?

Hi Nate. We do not recommend adding a fluid into a vacuum line. Sea Foam Spray through the throttle body works much better!

Yes, you can use Sea Foam Spray in a GDI turbo engine. However, to clean up a gummed-up fuel injector, you need to introduce Sea Foam directly to the fuel system, you’ll want to use Sea Foam Motor Treatment or High Mileage in your gas tank. Add a full can or two to a low tank of fuel (1/8 tank or so) and drive until almost empty before refueling. The high concentration does a great job cleaning.

I have a 2014 Subaru Forester xt 2.0 turbo. I have carbon buildup on the valves. Can I use Sea Foam on it? Plus it has high mileage.

Hi Scottie – yes, you can use Sea Foam on it. Here’s what I’d do to help with the carbon buildup:

Run a treatment of Sea Foam Spray through the intake. In addition, when the tank is low (4-5 gallons), add a full can of High Mileage Motor Treatment to the fuel tank and drive it until almost empty before refueling.
