Bg 44k

Dear Friends,

I just whant to share my experience after reading a message in another M mailing list concerning a product called BG 44K.
After this message you can read my point of view.

__________________________________________________ __
I have just read an article in TOTAL BMW,about cleaning the fuel system,I have for some time suspected that my M3 wasnt picking up speed fast enough,and there seemed to be a slight lack of sparkle, so after reading the article in TOTAL BMW I purchased a product called BG44K and it really has made a difference,it has put back the sparkle in the performance it lasts for 10,000 miles before you need another dose of treatment.
What the chemical does is it cleans the valves, lamba sensor, and cat and loads of other stuff that robs u of power, I bought mine from BM Euroservice in Wolverhampton it was about £15 but truly it was worth it, Ive used Redline Fuel treatment in the past, and that was no where near this product for performance.
__________________________________________________ __
After Nick’s e-mail concerning his experience with BG 44 K I ordered a can from France, to try it in to my BMW M3.
The results are amazing! The car feels again very fast without any hesitation, and as Nick said the car is noticeably quicker and smoother.
I have also conducted another test:
I have taken the 4 gas emissions (HC, CO, CO² and O²) before putting the BG 44K.
After putting one can of 44K in a full tank and the first tank has been finished, I checked again the emissions test. There is a serious reduction in HC (hydrocarbon, or unburned gasoline), CO and a rise in the CO².
With one word this product is amazing and I suggest that you should all use it!!

what model year is your M3? I think these products would work great for older cars. ie 10+ years old, but for a lot of the newer ones, there's no benefit for these products just yet....

mmm... has anyone seen any articles or proper technical reviews of this stuff?

Remember all the aggro after the Slick 50 ??

I`m all up for this sort of thing, but I`d really like to know what exactly it is, ie. why aren`t there ten or so rivals using the same stuff inside ??

Dear friends,

My car is a BMW M3 E36 Euro Spec 3.0L modified (340 HP).
As already said I am impressed with the results after using BG 44K.
BG 44 K is a product from the US based company BG Products Inc. (
According to the article in the Total BMW magazine Jaguar is now using the BG44K additive as part of their regular servicing on V8s,and BMW is now doing tests with a view to using the product so it can carry a BMW part number.
