In the US, it's everywhere. NAPA, Wal-Mart, Autozone, any place pretty much that sells car stuff.

I would have thought that one would find Seafoam at the Seashore..................... :o

I get mine at Walmart, has any one else heard that Seafoam should not be used in an 1800 with fuel injection? I mentioned to a Honda mechanic that I had put 6 oz. in the tank to clean the injectors, and he told me to never use Seafoam in an 1800. I haven't heard that anywhere else.

Tell him you want to see the official directive on that. They call it a TSB (Technical Service Bulletin). I'll bet you a case of Seafoam that he can not produce one, or even give you a rational reason of his own.

FYI if anyone wants to know. Here's info on making your own stuff. It also shows the breakdown of ingredients and their purpose. Interesting reading.
