If I use the seafoam in my gas tank, do I have to use it with a full tank? I have seen a few videos of people who use it when they are on E. Would that be ok to do?

I always put a whole bottle in the gas tank when I fill it up. Not that a full bottle is required...but thats what I do.

i like to fill my gas tanks to about 1/2 way, pour in the treatment of choice, then continue filling
i have not added anything to the Rams fuel tank yet, but, my old vehicles i did, another trick is to use Hi test gasoline just before a long trip & add 1 gallon of diesel fuel, i don't know if it would work with the newer engines though

someone mentioned not using an additive to your crankcase oil, todays motor oil is blended & an additive COULD cause the blend to seperate, i won't test that theory

I agree, that's why I'm just going to put some in the gas tank.

Every time I change my oil (3k miles like clockwork) I also run a full tank of gas w/ a full bottle of seafoam have been doing this for every vehicle ive owned. Just recently did this w/ the Ram for the first time and got a nice smoke cloud for quite a while guess it works lol

I put half in the tank, and the other half in the brake booster line, let it die, then pour the rest in, wait 10-15 minutes and start (it will be a bitch and smoke like you wouldn't believe me) I'll upload a video at some point for you guys to take a look

What does the brake booster hook up to at the motor?

A main vacuum line. Looks like a big plug at the front of the booster you can pull out and it directly dumps into the engine so it works the best.
