Default GM Top Engine Cleaner

Is it safe to use on our cars? I was at the dealer picking up some parts and asked if they had any so I bought a bottle, but they turned white as ghosts when I told them what car I have.

Did I miss something? Because I thought lots of members have used this stuff.

I prefer seafoam personally. They're basically the same, but ohhhh well.

Yes, it, like seafoam, is an excellent product. If they seemed shocked...well...then they're out of the loop.

Is this a gasoline additive or is it meant to be poured directly into the intake of the motor? I seem to recall GM having a pour-in additive for loosening carbon from the carburetor type days.

Maybe they looked that way because they have a fancy and expensive machine that they use with it, and they don't know any other way.
