WICHITA, Kan. – BG Products, Inc., has upgraded the number one aftermarket fuel system cleaner among automotive service managers. New BG Platinum® 44K® is a next-generation gas tank additive that delivers powerful cleaning to modern gasoline direct injection (GDI) fuel delivery and combustion systems.

Carbon buildup in GDI engines is getting tougher and tougher to remove. And with GDI engines powering a majority of new vehicles on the road, this is a big problem to solve.

“Based on our research, BG Platinum® 44K® is the most comprehensive cleaning product available for all gasoline fuel systems, especially today’s smaller, boosted engines,” says Dustin Willhite, BG Director of Product Technology.
