    A diesel fuel cleaner that actually works !!

    I figured this was as good a place as anywhere to let my fellow sludger lovers know of a great product that I can personally vouch for.
    I have used Forte in the past but this new find seems noticeably better.

    My TDS was running a bit rough, occasionally holding back / injector light coming on and generally not as it ought to be.
    I had a good search online and based on numerous positve testimonials I thought I would give this stuff a go.
    Now I have to admit to being a little sceptical beforehand, but having driven around for a few days I can honestly say that the car is feeling so much better.
    The hesitancy (at times quite alarming) has been banished and the injector light has not lit at all since adding the treatment.

    Part of that improvement might well be the cetane boosting properties, so I am hoping that this doesn't mean that when I revert to normal fuel the car feels sluggish.
    I will be making this product a part of my routine maintenance either as part of a normal service or a week or so prior to MOT time.

    Anyway...... the product is called BG 244 Diesel Cleaner and it's available from here; Power Enhancer HOME | Engine Cleaning | Injector Cleaner | Octane Booster

    to be honest i cant think of any detrimental effects of an additive for diesels cos they are so naturally dirty running engines...

    only advise i will give is not to overuse it tho, every 3rd or 4th tankful is plenty...


    an example of how effective it is, the big sludgers i work on we used to have them full tilt on the loadbank where the turbo's would chirp violently and engine would puff smoke as the turbo chirped, all due to carbon build up on the turbo vanes, before they banned the original redex we used to spray 2 or 3 gallons of it up the air intake on full tilt and it would clean off the carbon deposits on the vanes...

    Would judge BG 244 more as a Trade product rather than for the normal man in the street (Halfords) shopper but certainly a good review E36 TDS.

    If this one treatment has done the job you can help keep the fuel system clean with a half dose of Millers EcoMax, formerly known as Millers Sport 4 every time you fill up

    Go for it mate.
    Even if your car seems to be running fine we all know how filthy sludgers get and as DD puts it he can't think of any detrimental effects - that should convince you

    The 20 price tag is the only sticking point at the moment!

    Hopefully your car is running well, it was an easier decision for me as it was 20 vs possible injector refurb / replacement.
    I reckon an annual usage, either as part of your service routine OR a week or two before the MOT seems a sensible option.
    In which case 20 per year doesn't seem too hard to justify.
    Ah go on go on go on as Mrs Doyle would say
