Default BG44K Fuel Treatment Cleaner

My mechanic said that the Techron additive is good, but it generally fairly weak to get out any nasty stuff. He is putting BG44K and will run it through about 1/2 a tank. He said it should be done with a relatively clean fuel filter and you shouldn't let it sit in your gas tank for too long.

I'll report back how the car runs after I pick it up for routine maintenance next week. Having the oil, filter, brake fluid changed, new tires, fuel treatment, tech inspection + brake hoses (for a DE event on May 9th), and new plugs installed.

I dropped in a can of 44 K based on that thread "OVER THERE"...so far I've driven about 250 miles in both city and country and run through about 2/3 of a tank of gas. Have detected no difference at all.

That's not to say it's not doing its job, or that it's no good...but I haven't seen any difference. I'm due for an oil change soon, so I'll pack a sample off to Blackstone and see what they say.

The best way to run injector cleaner is with a long spirited drive, or a DE. When I tore my 130k engine down after the track mishap, it was surprisingly clean inside-piston tops included. Although, tuning can affect that too. When I took it down the next time, after running the Berry multichip (I knew it was rich) a lot, not as much track time, there was a lot of carbon on the old pistons.

Doyle, that was a good read, and brought back some good memories. I agree with Ed on the concept of good tuning and tracking makes for a clean running engine. Ray, maybe your engine simply doesn't need BG44k because it's clean already. Good, you must be driving it and taking care of it properly!
