Depending on the quality of the cell, Lithium can hold a standby charge for quite a long time based on my limited experience with a few devices I own

Well, I checked the manufacturers website and see this shown for the product:
"The RTC2000 is ideal for cars, motorbikes, bikes, scooters and other inflatables and can top up a car tyre in under 3 mins and a bike tyre from flat in under 2 mins."

I presume "bike tyre" is a bicycle and if so depending on size and pressure two minutes isn't too bad but not a huge volume.  Now factor in one of our rear tires and that has to be quite a few multiples of a bicycle tire volume (but often lower pressure).  I checked the Slime website and see they have a couple of inflaters that indicate a Standard car tire (yes USA site/spelling) and they indicate 10 to 12 minutes.  Now, I also don't know what a "Standard" car tire is size-wise and these run off 12 volts of the vehicle also.

Sorry, I seem to have started taking this somewhat seriously.  :034:

Flatten one of your tires and see how long it takes to re-inflate to close to proper pressure.   :084:

That might be a make or break situation.  Interesting at least.

According to the MDS,  this product is mostly naphtha :

         https://lucasoil.com/pdf/SDS_safeguard-ethanol-stabilizer.pdf     ( see page 2 ).   

So this product isn't much different as home-brew "Seafoam".  But the home-brew "Seafoam" contains some iso-alchohol to mitigate any moisture in the system.  I buy the naphtha at my local hardware store, BTW.
I agree.  I believe it was an old thread on bobistheoilguy.com where folks were also discussing their homebrew Seafoam and the arguments also revolved around "pale" oil which most decided was kerosene/diesel fuel in some form.  So Naphtha, Iso-Alchohol and a touch of kerosene.  :152:

On various forums Seafoam is generally highly regarded as a concentrated cleaner.  A dose in your fuel probably wouldn't do any harm.  However, I suggest you don't overthink things as there are many of the bikes that have never had any additives added are are running fine.  If you have a specific issue with the Throttle Bodies and want to try adding a dose before doing anything else then I'd go ahead.

Well, the screen cap indicates it's "on the way" so there's still hope.
