However, there are two potential problems to be aware of. The first is hydrolocking the engine which can, of course, have devastating consequences. (Obviously, you would know if that occurred.) The other potential issue is adding so much product so quickly that a chunk of carbon from an intake valve or piston crown is dislodged and rattles around in a combustion chamber for a bit. This is a more subtle occurrence that may temporarily yield a faint rattle or pinging (unrelated to spark knocking) until the chunk of carbon finds its way into the exhaust system. Until that happens, it can cause cylinder wall scoring or interfere with valve operation.
All that is to say that the practice can be extremely helpful but that there also can be consequences to adding too much too fast. Typically, you know would instantly if you had done so. You might consider using part #0110, part #0117, or part #0120 in the future as the aerosol version uses the same chemistry but gives better control over its delivery characteristics.
