New technologies need BG

CAFE (Corporate Average Fuel Economy) standards will save new 2016 car buyers $4,000 in gas over the lifetime of the vehicle, say government analysts. In 2011, the Obama administration and vehicle manufacturers (OEMs) agreed on a CAFE fleet mandate of 54.5 MPG by 2025, OEMs must innovate to achieve the ever-growing number of miles a more…

BG 12Q VIA®

BG 12Q VIA®, PN 9300, is a one-of-a-kind diesel intake and emissions system cleaning machine that allows technicians to not only command Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) regeneration, but to control it for a thorough cleaning. To reduce harmful exhaust emissions, diesel engines are equipped with DPFs to collect soot and other combustion byproducts. When the more…

Lab Q&A: Should I leave BG EPR® in the engine?

Question: Can I leave BG EPR® in my engine until my next oil change? Answer: No. BG EPR® Engine Performance Restoration,® PN 109, reduces oil contamination by fuel and minimizes oil evaporation into the air intake, which is a common problem in gasoline direct injection engines. This results in more miles per tank and decreased more…

The Dieselization of America!

If you read this article, you learned about a few new technologies in the automotive arena. One such technology, gasoline direct injection (GDI), has become increasingly popular in recent years. In 2014, GDI vehicles held a 38 percent market share in the light duty passenger car market. The American GDI market will continue to grow more…

BG SAE 0W-20 Full Synthetic Engine Oil is a high quality oil designed for gasoline passenger cars, vans, and light trucks requiring API SN and preceding engine oil. It flows immediately to lubricate vital engine components for easy cold weather starts and provides outstanding high temperature protection. It features a low evaporation rate as well more…

What’s the matter with particulate matter?

Diesel fuel (even ULSD) is notorious for producing large amounts of particulate matter (soot). Regularly burning this soot-juice in a diesel engine can take a toll, leaving unburned hydrocarbons throughout the intake and emissions system. The diesel particulate filter’s (DPF) primary job is to remove the soot from the exhaust gas, to reduce air pollution. more…

Under pressure: Low tension piston rings

In order to reduce frictional drag energy loss and increase fuel efficiency, gasoline direct injection (GDI) engines use thinner and lighter piston rings, called low tension piston rings. Piston ring spring force in older port fuel injection (PFI) engines used to be as high as 30 psi. New PFI and GDI engines can have more more…
