I am curious as to who uses this in the crankcase either continuously or as the flash before oil changes. I am only interested in the crankcase aspect. Those of you who do use it what are your methods? How much do you use? And how long do you use it?

If I'm not mistaken, that product is a Seafoam type product that also contains PEA.
I would imagine it has a lower concentration of PEA than their REGANE line so I would probably just use that.

That’s all good and well but as I stated in my post I only cared about the crankcase aspect.

Sorry JH, I missed that when I read (quickly) your post....I wouldn't imagine the PEA would matter much in the crankcase...so the cheaper SuperTech brand would probably do the same thing in the crankcase.

I too am in this position. I plan to add an ounce and a half per quart of oil, run it for like 300 miles and then do an oil change. I hope it can help clean the engine slowly rather than flush it. I always avoid flushing agents.
