Nope I haven't. I haven't heard anything wrong, nor see any fuel mileage decrease so I won't bother. Power is still strong, and I get about 400 miles per tank for 20%city/50%country/30%hwy driving. No regrets so far!

Mine's different. Mine is hooked to the back of the brake pedal. Must be an option...

+1 on smoking out the neighborhood. I would suggest changing the oil shortly after the seafoam treatment.

Did my 330 non ZHP awhile back. Changed the oil the next weekend. Been about 6 weeks now and whatever difference it made seems to have diminished. How often can you do this treatment? Ive heard every 2-5k miles. Any thoughts??
