Question: Why do High Pressure Common Rail injection systems see more rough running engines, misfire, low power and increased emissions than traditional diesel injection systems? Do black fuel filters cause these problems?
Answer: High Pressure Common Rail (HPCR) diesel injection systems are designed to produce significantly more power with reduced emissions due to closer tolerances, improved injection metering, and higher injection pressures. But with great technology comes great challenges. In HPCR injection systems, extreme high temperatures and pressures can cause instantaneous breakdown of ULSD fuel into basic carbon (black fuel) form. And, basic carbon can cause premature fuel filter plugging and internal injector deposits.
Chemistry for traditional injection systems won’t do the trick when fighting these high pressure injector deposits. New diesel detergent technology is required to maximize performance in HPCR injection systems. BG DFC with Lubricity HP, PN 225, cleans fuel injector deposits and prevents black fuel filter plugging in High Pressure Common Rail (HPCR) systems.
Will BG DFC Plus HP also address traditional diesel injector deposits? Yes. BG DFC Plus HP provides unsurpassed fuel system protection and prevents the formation of the soot-black fuel byproducts that plug filters and build deposits. It keeps injectors clean, prevents fuel gelling, corrects nozzle fouling, reduces exhaust smoke and protects engine parts against corrosion. It contains a lubricity agent for protection against ULSD. BG DFC Plus HP prevents entrained moisture from icing. It mixes readily with all diesel fuels and is an excellent fuel storage stabilizer.
