WICHITA, Kan – In December, BG Products, Inc., partnered with Mesilla Valley Transportation Solutions (MVTS), a provider of breakthrough fuel economy testing design and development services for the trucking industry, to display the effects of using BG EPR® Engine Performance Restoration® and BG Heavy Duty Fuel System Performance Restoration in High Pressure Common Rail (HPCR) fuel systems.
“The expertise and resources at MVTS gave us the confidence that they would fairly and accurately validate our internal testing and real-world results. Their entire process of qualitative and quantitative testing was streamlined and efficient,” said Nathan Ebert, BG Chief Business & Strategy Officer.
“Having verified test results is important because this is not a product that is added by the drivers at each fill-up, which is a deal-breaker for most fleets,” continued Ebert. “Bottom line, if MVTS verifies the fuel savings for a given technology, a fleet’s Director or VP of Maintenance can take it to the bank that it works.”
About BG Heavy Duty Fuel System Performance Restoration
BG Heavy Duty Fuel System Performance Restoration is designed to eliminate injector deposits commonly found in High Pressure Common Rail (HPCR) fuel systems and, subsequently, restore optimum fuel efficiency. As the first verified solution for fleets, this periodic-use, heavy duty product has been specially formulated to restore performance after just one use.
About EPR® Engine Performance Restoration®
BG EPR® Engine Performance Restoration® is designed to soften, emulsify and dissolve even the most stubborn fuel gums that clog piston rings. This one-of-a-kind product works quickly to clean even the toughest deposits in minutes.
In the 1,000-mile certified tests, MVTS evaluated the effects of BG EPR® Engine Performance Restoration® and BG Heavy Duty Fuel System Performance Restoration in Detroit and Cummins 2017 15-liter models with engines having approximately 300,000 miles. Fuel injectors were analyzed before and after use of the product.
MVTS’ certified test results on the diesel fuel additive showed a 1.31 percent improvement in fuel efficiency on a Detroit Diesel engine and a 2.11 percent increase on a Cummins X15 engine.
“We saw positive fuel economy results with BG Heavy Duty Fuel System Performance Restoration,” said Daryl Bear, Lead Engineer & Chief Operating Officer at MVTS. “That’s a big deal because we have never before successfully validated the claims of an additive used in a heavy-duty diesel fuel system or engine.”
