Feb. 21, 2020—BG Products, Inc. is now MVTS Solutions Certified as having validated fuel economy savings, according to MVT Solutions.
"We are very excited about the results we saw from BG 2-Part HD Service," said Daryl Bear, lead engineer & COO at MVT Solutions. "An additive that saves fuel, lowers maintenance costs, and has no driver involvement is a home run. Many additive companies claim to provide benefits, but BG Products is the first we've seen prove it."
In the 1,000-mile MVTS Certified Test, MVTS evaluated the BG 2-Part HD Service, which is designed to restore piston ring integrity, eliminate injector deposits commonly found in High Pressure Common Rail (HPCR) fuel systems and restore optimum fuel efficiency, according to the report. In day to day operations, the treatment is used at every oil drain interval by technicians and takes less than ten minutes. For the test, vehicles with engines with approximately 300,000 miles were used, and 2017 Detroit Diesel DD15 and Cummins X15 models were selected due to their popularity and the availability of data on their lifecycle efficiency losses.
The results showed a 1.31 percent improvement in fuel efficiency on a Detroit Diesel DD15 engine and a 2.11 percent increase on a Cummins X15 engine. Before and after the MVTS evaluation, fuel injectors were analyzed for additional data comparison points. Inspection of the injectors prior to testing showed blockage, while following the test there was a noticeable improvement in the spray holes.
