Is there any problem with running seafoam through the fuel system on a FI rig? I know maggie warns against allowing it to come in contact with the blower rotors. Anybody using it?

I use a can before every oil change - half in with the oil and the other half in the gas tank. I too have heard that it will eat the coating off the rotors.
I thought using a Meth kit on a Maggie would eat the rotors not a seafoam kit , but I could be wrong..

I think that warning is aimed towards people who put Seafoam directly into the intake of their motors... which would force it through the rotors.

By introducing it to the engine through the injectors (pouring it into your gas tank) I don't believe any of it actually comes into contact with the rotors.

This depends entirely on intake/intercooler/blower design, but I'm pretty sure the rotors don't touch the fuel.

True, but I'd read on another forum where someone had talked with a tech at magnuson that said no seafoam in the fuel either. But as the discussion went forward, it was assumed that this was just them being cautious and not wanting to be held responsible for anything. I tried calling myself but the sales guy never heard of Seafoam and when I asked to speak to a tech...I was disconnected. I'm gonna try it anyway.
