    So did a quick search...and...

    http://airtexmobile.airtexproducts.com/news-what-is-vapor-lock.aspx

    Seems like it won't be an issue considering 1. Pressurized fuel system. 2. Mixing with fuel and not generating a tremendous about of heat via boost

    most likely will not generate enough heat in a DI system to cause vaporizing of fuel...(guessing there)...

    This thread also needs an intellectual response to the original posit...looks like the short bus got vapor lock at the ball field...

    Ok, Seafoam is a petroleum distillate and vaporizes at low temps, which may cause vapor lock in areas that experience low temps....So beware of advice from people that live in the southwest, yet you live in the Northeast in the wintertime, and may think putting Seafoam in your gas tank is a good idea...that is why winter gas is concocted for low temp's...chardonnay is not chardonnay just because it has the same alcohol content...ask any sommelier

    FiST owners in cold environs may not want to put petroleum distillates into your gas tank as it may cause vapor lock in your engine...aka Seafoam...it increases volatility, which may increase the possibility of vapor lock in cold times...yes cold times

    Do you ever think before you post or do you just submit every crazy baseless idea that pops into your head? Slow down, ponder it to yourself, don't just spam the forum with post after post after post of speculation. Please.

    I can honestly say that I don't think many (hopefully any) people will take 'intelligence' advice from you.
