I have used B-12 Carb and Choke cleaner in all my vehicle gas tanks for years but I recently had my motorcycle gas tank coated with Teflon (FYI, the application of Teflon was done properly as part of an overall restoration project). Is it still safe to use or will it damage the Teflon coating? I don’t ride this bike very often – but I guess I should, since it gets over 30 miles per gallon! What if I applied about 1 ounce to the 3 gallons, do I need to run it all through that quickly?
Given the infrequency of use, I suggest that you run your 3-gallon tank down, or syphon out, to about a gallon of fuel in the tank and add 1 ounce of B-12. You might take a 30+ mile road trip to clean out residues and build-ups from lack of use and then refill the tank to capacity. I see no problem with your dilution ratio with longer fuel storage – but consider the initial reason for your application of B-12 in the first place: You’re cleaning the system out as part of the restoration of the motorcycle, and a higher dilution ratio puts B-12’s High Energy Solvent Technology (H.E.S.T.) to work at its ideal performance level for the appropriate duration.
