    Fuel injector and engine cleaners comparison

    I don't know if this has been posted before, but I just came across it. Pretty intresting I should say.

    Seems like Toulene/Xylene, in addtion to increasing octane, clean better without hurting nylon hoses, than Castrol/Redline/STP.

    Funny, I always thought the fuel line hoses tend to be reinforced rubber hoses.

    BG 44K is the best fuel system cleaner out there.

    Is it too late to come back on track?

    Where can I get BG 44K from?

    I contacted them a while back....(might be email...) also, as they are more places than the site lists.

    That's great. I was hoping I could find it at a store and pick it up on the way home. But the nearest distributor is in Ohio.

    Oh well, back to google

    Lots of BG products are sold through automotive dealership service and parts departments. Check with your local dealerships (if you want, Servco Lexus Honolulu sells BG :-)

    The link at the top of this thread no longer works. I found this comparison at another site. Interesting results. Does the WRX have a nylon fuel sock?

    Yes, the WRX has a nylon fuel sock.

    There's been a lot of talk about using toulene as an octane booster. Now, it seems that it cleans the fuel system too!

    BG 44K is good stuff. i've never used it, but it gets great reviews.

    i am a fan of the techron fuel system cleaner. i do one every oil change or so. the BG44K stuff is a little longer term, am i right tan?

    Are there any reliable on-line stores for the BG 44K? How about big auto chains?
    Thanks,

    Yeah, here in Lakewood, Advance, AutoZone, CarQuest, John Elway Subaru, Planet Honda all carry BG products.

    So did Dinstuhl's Fine Garage - the world's greatest Honda shop - 'till Pete decided he was sick of the wrench business. (sorry for off-topic but if he hadnt have closed I probably would've bought an RSX!)
