BG solves sticky situation in gasoline direct injection engines

In the article “Gasoline Direct Injection” in the Winter Issue of the Blend’r, we uncovered the disadvantages of the gasoline direct injection (GDI) engine:
  • Dramatic efficiency losses due to deposits on the piston surface
  • More deposits on the intake ports and valves (compared to port fuel injection engines)
  • Low-mileage misfire codes
  • Fuel economy loss
Disadvantages like these can cause serious drivability problems for GDI car owners.

Good at problem solving

BG began studying the GDI problems in Lexus and Volkswagen models – which were seeing these problems most–and developed the first effective GDI cleanup solution on the market, BG Fuel Injection & Combustion Chamber Cleaner, PN 201. The cleaner removes deposit buildup on fuel injectors and inside combustion chambers to restore power and efficiency and lower harmful emissions.

With the BG 22 View VIA® Vehicle Injection Apparatus, PN E101-1178, provides highly effective cleaning for gasoline fuel injection systems.

Missing: GDI problems in some dealerships

In our field research, we discovered a few Lexus dealerships weren’t seeing the GDI problems described above. Upon further investigation, we found that these shops were using BG with every oil change.

Wayne Graybeal and Dave Disco of BG LSI, say the dealerships they service rarely see cars with heavy deposits and drivability problems that are typical for GDI engines. “The only way to prevent this stuff is with proper maintenance using a top-quality product.”

In other words, preventive maintenance with BG 44K®, PN 208, and BG Advanced Formula MOA®, PN 115, at each oil service can curtail dramatic efficiency losses, extensive deposits, low-mileage misfire codes and fuel economy loss. But we already knew that, right?

Some auto experts claim that the GDI engine is the “best engine on the market today.” With BG’s Gasoline Direct Injection Cleaner and BG preventive maintenance, that claim will ring true.
