When I heard people talk about these products I thought they were crazy. That is until I needed somthing to resurrect an old 2-stroke boat motor. I am a firm believer in this stuff. I use them on any 2-stroke engine I have. (Boat, mower, weed-whacker, etc.)
His motor is probably a four stroke, but this advice should still work. A lot of times, those motors are suffering from a gunked up carb or from dirty air problems. I just use carb cleaner and compressed air to clean carbs.
I use Seafoam
as a fuel additive for my 4hp/4Stroke sailboat kicker and it helps a lot, and I also use ethanol free gas, which is probably the most important thing for a small motor with tiny carb jets. And keep the tank full.
