    I'm hoping Honda did a better job on the overall engine design than Ford did on my F150 EcoBoost. This problem gets particularly bad if the vehicle is driven short distances and the engine doesn't have a chance to warm up and blow out any accumulated carbon. Moral of the story is drive it like you stole once in a while.

    I've put it in my gas after my first oil change. About 7,000 miles. Why not can't hurt. Haven't fogged the engine though with it.

    I've done the same @5,000 miles. Didn't think it would hurt to dump a can in the gas tank. I'm currently at 11,500 miles and about to toss another can in. Based on what was posted, I'm weary of fogging the engine with it lol.

    I’m thinking about seafoam-ing my civic too. Did it help your gas mileage when you used in the gas tank? How’s your civic now? Did you ever try seafoam spray in your engine?

    "It remains to be seen.." it does. When my warranty expires, which would be 60k kms in Canada, I will be taking a look at the intake valves. I have been using cheap gas for most of my 1.5L turbo's life and stretching the oil change intervals to when the MM hits 5% oil life left. I hope my investigation will be revealing.

    Anyone know how to get to the throttle body on the 1.5L? A pointer to a picture of the under the hood area would help me.
