I just tried to put some additive in my 2001 E350 V10 and I am not sure if all the additive went into the nozzle hole. If some went into the slots around the nozzle hole, does it still go into the tank or somewhere else? I saw no dripping. Anything to be worried about?

I did not see any liquid dripping on the ground just wondering if all the additive
made it into the tank.  The neck of the additive got stuck about where the
opening was so it was hard to know where all the additive went.  Thanks.

No worries.

No worries. It probably did go in to tank. But if not, and no drips, it went in to evap and will just be consumed by intake. But just curious, why do you need an additive?

Thanks FordNut. I put in a fuel stabilizer since it is a seldom driven RV and has a 55 gallon tank and the gas is getting old. There is a generator and I worry about varnishing when the gas gets old. I ran the generator for about 10 to 15 minutes after adding it so hopefully it got some to it. Thanks again.

I would try and use up all the gas at least once a year to avoid major head aches. Use Sta-Bil while you are at it.

Makes perfect sense. It's just that some folks feel the need to waste money on 'octane boosters' and that crap. But Like I say, in your case make complete sense. Thanks for responding

PS... FoR is right. Sta-Bil is the best product for that

Thanks. I usually use Sta-Bil but used Sea Foam this year because the generator was not starting up as well as before. We always use at least one tank per year but not sure if we will be taking it our for pleasure any time soon. Drove it about an hour and a half about 3 weeks ago just to run it...

Right thing to do. Otherwise condensation can/will form in crankcase, it needs to be run up to full normal operation temperature for at least 20-30 minutes on occasion. Allow the PCV to work. Yep, Sea Foam is just as good. Matter of fact the same recipe.
