fuel injection

I've recently been getting really poor gas milage, the car seemed to lag, i also had pretty bad idle. i was getting no more than 13mpg which is horible i shift at 2000 rpm! the gauge that reads my mpg was also not working

i recently invested in this product called BG44k which also came with another BG product. both claimed to clean the fuel injector and everything along with it. i bought this product because after reading into it, i saw that BMW and mercedes highly recommended this product, so i figured i might as well give it a shot.

Im telling everyone i didn't think it would work the way it did. its been 20 miles and my mpg gauge works now and i get no less than 25 miles to the gallon. the car runs so much smoother and the idle is amazing. who new 20 dollars could help so much.

everyone ur car is at least 20 years old i highly recommend you invest in this product it is amazing

Sounds more like the chip is needing to burn premium. If that product raises octane that is. Mine needs premium or it stumbles a bit.

i've worked at a ford garage (sadly) and we used many of their products for trannys, p/s, coolant, and fuel induction flushed which was the bg44K
it sure does make a lot of white smoke when drawn through the engine but really cleans up the top-end!!!! a huge gain in performance!! we had some beat cars come in and thought to be on their death beds but after a little tune-up with the BG stuff, it totally fixed all the sluggishness the cars had! i believe the stuff works and would definetly suggest it to anyone to use

oh yeah if done correctly, it is forced through the intake under the shops air pressure and then also added to gas in tank...........you get 2 bottles with the kit!

IM a master tech and I work for toyota, Our dealership LOVES the BG lineup, we use everything from the tranny cleaner to the BG 44k, I have taken engines apart that use the stuff every 5,000 miles and they look brand new. Also the BG MOA is a good oil additive. The 44K plus the intake cleaner ROCKS, You can feel a differece.

My top end is totally clean after the rebuild. Does this BG44k prevent build up on a rebuilt engine? I never put much stock into additives and have been considering that Zmax stuff or what ever it is called. My concern is the Alusil coating on our cylinders and if this and the BG stuff is ok to use and not destroy the Alusil. They say this stuff soaks into the metal and wonder if it has any effect?

Thats a coincidence because i put some of that bg 44k in my S2 just last week,and like u also noticed a difference in engine smoothness and MPG

Well worth it even though its 25 in the uk {yes thats uk pounds}

They dont call it rip off britain for nothing!!

Purchased a throttle switch the other week from local Porsche center it was actually twice the price as what i could of got one imported from the states!!

U wouldnt mind we are a lot closer to Germany than u lot!

Mark....It may be because Porsche uses Bosch TPS and they are a USA mfg'r so shipping to Europe adds to the cost over there. I could be incorrect but I believe Bosch is American based.

Bosch is german ,never knew they were made in the US
Thought they would of had factorys in Germany

Besides i could have got one from a guy on ebay delivered for half what i paid,but if it gets opened in customs i would have to pay VAT and anythin else thay put on ,costing me more .Plus i wanted it quick

I've been using BG44k for a few years - it's definately a miracle cure and I can usually feel the engine start to purr in about 10 miles.

I too support BG44K. I've used it for years, It is the only fuel system cleaner that really seems to work.

You can find it at NAPA stores.
