Less ZDDP = More engine wear?
How can BG help?
BG Advanced Formula MOA®, PN 115, uses a combination of additives that improve oil’s ability to withstand breakdown due to combustion byproducts, increased temperatures and loads, and frictional wear. And unlike many other oil additives, BG MOA® does not fully rely on ZDDP as its sole anti-wear additive and antioxidant. BG MOA® relies on its proprietary additives for extra wear protection and oxidation stability under severe condition, like that of engines with flat tappet cams. For cars with catalytic converters, BG MOA® only contains ZDDP to a similar concentration as a typical base engine oil, which is not enough to ruffle a cat’s fur.
If the cat already stinks, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s poisoned by ZDDP. Chances are hydrocarbon deposits from combustion have plugged it up. And a dirty cat can pump noxious gases into the air and reduce engine performance. For extra protection of the catalytic converter and oxygen sensor, pour in a can of BG Platinum 44K®, PN 208, in the fuel tank every 7,500 miles. BG 44K® is proven to restore converter efficiency and remove deposits from the oxygen sensor ultimately restoring power and performance.
So the next time you hear someone like Keith yelling, “Oil is killing our cars!” recommend BG MOA® for superior lubrication and wear protection of the engine’s moving parts- even flat tappet cams.
