Default BG Oil Additives (MOA, 44K, 109)??

A few of us were talking cars this weekend and our buddy, who works for BG Oil, was telling us about some of their products. He said the BG MOA and 109 work great for cleaning out carbon buildup to help protect piston rings and help flush the engine of unwanted deposit buildups. This instantly caught my attention since one of my biggest concerns is a broken ringland.

He also said the 44K cleans the injectors better than any other cleaners available. Yes, this sounded like a bit of a sales pitch , but a couple of my Google searches lead me to people saying it really does work wonders.

He gave me two cans of each of these products to try out for free, so I figure it can't hurt to give it a shot. Especially since these products don't seem to cause any negative repercussions, from what I've read.

Anyway, anyone use this stuff?

Thanks for the advice. He wants me to give him a call to discuss the install instructions well before using it. So I plan on doing that for my next oil change.

Redline SI-1 is a very good fuel system cleaner that also contains an upper cylinder lubricant.

Fuel Power FP+ is also a good UCL.

Lucas Fuel Treatment is also a UCL.

http://www.s2ki.com/s2000/topic/1713...are-they-safe/ is the bomb for fuel injector cleaner info.

Much ado about nothing is my take as I've used none of it my whole life and my car is 100% fine, but if it makes you feel better, go for it. I do use Sea Foam on occasion though, but only to be a jackass and fog up neighborhoods like an idiot.

Yeah, I don't think I would have ever shelled out money for this stuff but since it's free I figure, why not?

Some cars really do need to have a cleaner sprayed into the manifold periodically. I don't know if all Subarus need it, but I'd wager any car with an EGR system will benefit.

I had a Mercury Mystique V6 with the fancy dual runner intake. The "secondary" runner which didn't include the fuel injector would gum up something fierce. It needed a cleaner treatment through the manifold (not in the gas tank) yearly. I'll bet any direct injected car benefits too.

Yea direct injected cars tend to suffer from carbon problems... modern day Lexus engines with misfire codes come to mind....

many fuel system issues are regional due to regional climatic and fuel quality issues....a pint of low sulfur mineral spirits with a dash of atf in the fuel tank once in a while never hurt

ooops....another us secret slips out
