Can you give us a bit more to go on? Are you having issues or just playing with a new toy? :mrgreen:

Looks like a lot of carbon build up. Seafoam should help with that. What year and specific model is your RRS?

Is it safe to seafoam a range rover? Im too afraid of damaging something as these things are already sensitive as it is.

For a 140,000m engine I would have thought everthing is quite normal - typical carbon build up. Dont worry about it - leave it alone and dont go looking for trouble.

In my opinion, yes it's safe. I used to do it all the time with my Audi 1.8T and it worked very well but that's a 4 cylinder. I would wager that for an 8 cylinder you need to use 2 cans to completely soak it.

This video showed great results compared to the other products the commentator used but I would recommend using the vacuum line method vs the method shown in the video as that method works on the Honda 4 banger. I tried an entire can on my 2010 RRS S/C and used the vacuum line method. It worked but there wasn't enough product in the can to soak the entire engine. Next time I won't get the aerosol can as per the video and instead, buy the regular can. Some people here will tell you it's snake oil but in my opinion it helps and when you have a direct injection engine you really need these treatments as DI engines build up carbon far faster than regular fuel injected engines. Unless I'm mistaken, your 2006 is also Direct injection... Or you can forego everything I just said and just use a fuel with absolutely no ethanol in it. Very hard to find these days. Here in Canada Shell boasts a clean non ethanol based fuel but you never know.

I am running it regularly in my fuel tank. Works like a charm.
