Stricter MOT test rules make DPF doctoring no longer an option

The MOT test changed on 20 May 2018, with stricter rules for emissions from diesel cars with a diesel particulate filter (DPF). These new rules, say BG-GB, mean ‘cheat’ options such as isolating or removing the DPF have no place any longer – so any issues with the diesel exhaust system must be tackled properly.

What is an engine detox?

Deposits are a natural by-product of combustion and, without preventative maintenance, accumulate over time. Engine detox usually refers to the process of removing these engine deposits. 

What is decarbonisation? / What is an engine carbon clean?

Deposits attach themselves to many parts of the engine. Decarbonisation or engine carbon cleaning refers to the process of removing carbon deposits. 

Nice testimonial from BG Convert Keith

Just wanted to say thank you. Your products may not be cheap but are excellent! 

I would have no problem recommending these products as they are the only ones I have found that really do work. So well done.

Why GDI needs BG

The GDI (Gasoline Direct Injection) engine is seen as a leap forward in the quest for greater economy and lower emissions, and it has actually been delivering results. So, is the GDI engine too good to be true?

Expand your knowledge on compression

Within the internal combustion engine, the compression ratio, as it’s known, is the piston’s movement as it squeezes the fuel/air mixture in the cylinder. BG Products know that sadly loss of compression over time is inevitable. So it’s a good thing BG’s got a product to restore and maintain peak compression! Adding BG EPR to the engine and letting it tick over for at least 15 minutes restores compression by dissolving the deposits that clog rings and seals.

How much oil has your engine lost?

Advances in oil technology, filtration, PCV and engine management systems seem to have convinced everyone that frequent oil level inspection and services are unnecessary. But David Tenpenny of BG Technical Service is keen to communicate the message that it doesn’t mean your oil doesn’t need checking and that oil consumption doesn’t happen.
