Bg44k

Has anyone tried BG44K to clean the fuel system? Someone this weekend recommended it as superior to Seafoam or Techron.

Yes, it's my mid-life crisis.

Can't say I've ever used it, or heard of it.
HERE is a link to it.
But if I read a price correctly, it was $37.56 for an 11 oz can???!!!
Found some on eBay for $20 a can.

I do remember reading somewhere that the line of "BG" products were overpriced and useless...well, they did not say useless , they said the stuff was a "prime example of the rule that if it sounds to good to be true, it more than likely isn't"

But it's your money.

Those that do buy the stuff , I can only offer one word to you:




SUCKER

At that price, I'd not only expect to clean the internal parts, but wash and wax the outside too.

I can only report what I've been told by a reputable source that uses it in his hot rod. This source is someone who has built 2 hot rods, (not sent them out to be done, he's done it himself).

I'm just sayin'...
