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 as OEMs (and consumers) push for higher engine compression, leaner burn combustion and better fuel efficiency.
But today’s diesels are a far cry from the diesels of 40 years ago. Reputation is the biggest mound diesel manufacturers must climb. Volkswagen leads OEMs in this movement, quashing common diesel myths calling them “Old Wives’ Tales” in its new TV spots for the 2015 VW Passat TDI Clean Diesel.
What does it mean for BG?
- Direct Injection—Diesel engines have always used direct fuel injection, injecting fuel directly into the combustion chamber at the top of the compression stroke initiating and controlling combustion.
- Intake—Both diesel and gasoline direct injection engines have serious issues with carbon buildup in the intake and on the backs of intake valves.
- Just like the new technologies in gasoline engines, the best solution is preventive maintenance with the BG Diesel Performance Oil Change Service.
Sometimes it’s easier just to avoid the different, complex, incredibly fuel efficient engine. But OEMs aren’t avoiding diesels. Consumers aren’t avoiding diesels. BG is most certainly not avoiding diesels. Our Technology Department is innovating maintenance solutions for the diesel market every day!
