    Thread: B&g 44k

    1. 04-27-2012 12:56 PM #1
      Hi guys,

      My 06 2.0t FSI has 80K miles on the clock, and I just had a a rather large and expensive service done on it yesterday. When I picked up the car, the dealer recommended that I could run a bottle of B&G 44k in my next tank of gas. It would aparently get rid of alot of carbon build-ups on the injectors and elsewhere.

      Does anyone have any experience with this product? if so, good/bad?

      It may help clean the fuel injectors, but it won't do anything for the carbon build up on the valves since these engines are direct injection. The fuel is sprayed into the combustion chamber and never touches the valves.

      yea that's true... Given that info, do you think it is a waste?

      It's not a bad idea to run a fuel injector cleaner once in a while, so it's not a complete waste.

      BG 44k is good, but expensive.

      a bottle of Redline SI-1 is just as good... for half the price.

      So there were no direct instructions. Do I add it at a quarter of a tank and then fill up or whats the best way? Add it to half a tank of gas for higher concentration?

      I started using bg 44k last year after being recommended by dealership. I now use it about every 5000 miles on my b6 and cayenne. I run it about 2 weeks before getting oil change. I purchase multiple cans at a time on eBay to get price closer to 15 a can. Seems to be good stuff.

      I put it in before I fill up and then run that tank till its about 1/4 tank left and then refill. I figure most should be run thru by second tank.

      OK thanks. Howcome you do it right before an oil change? I just had my oil change done so I won't do that for a while. Will it do something to the oil and thats why you change it out?

    12. 04-27-2012 06:40 PM #12
      I've heard both. I do it just before oil change in hopes of getting debris out w oil change but I know many dealers do it when they service the car.

      I had used BG 44K in an Audi a few years ago. My very knowledgeable tech swore by it. I would also agree to use it before oil change, as it's sure to dissolve some crud somewhere in the engine.

      Where can I buy the Redline stuff?
