Is the BG Engine Performance Service worth the money?

What’s so special about a BG Engine Performance Service? What does “performance” mean in an oil change? Is it worth it to spend the extra money on a BG oil change?

There’s nothing special about most oil changes. Generally speaking, we know we’re obligated to take our cars in once in a while because they need the oil swapped out. That’s all most people know. And to be fair, that’s all most people care to know.

That is, until we learn the reasons we should care to know more. Like oil evaporation, declining MPG, power loss, slow throttle response, and excessive exhaust smoke.

Is it worth spending more money to prevent these drivability issues?

Why You Need the BG Engine Performance Service

While a typical oil change just swaps out the old oil for the new, the BG Engine Performance Service does that and so much more. With specially formulated chemistry to clean and remove deposits from the engine and the fuel system, a BG oil change:

  • Removes deposits from valves and combustion chambers
  • Restores compression across all cylinders
  • Dissolves sludge and varnish
  • Cleans stubborn oil deposits
  • Restores engine balance and power
  • Improves spark plug life
  • Cleans micro-passageways in gasoline direct injection engines

The Proof

We spent 60,000 miles proving the benefits of the BG Engine Performance Service with a fuel test car. The BG oil change resulted in gains in both horsepower and torque!

As you can see in the chart above, compression for this car’s cylinders was all over the place. After the BG oil change, compression is restored and consistent across all the cylinders. But… what does that mean?

It means the seal between the piston rings and the cylinder wall is as tight as it should be (i.e. no gas leaking into the crankcase and contaminating the oil). It also means that the engine is now producing power at its max efficiency. And if you’re still wondering what this means… Basically, more engine power + less fuel usage = money saved at the pump.

BG EPR® Engine Performance Restoration® is a powerhouse of an engine cleaner! It softens and dissolves the carbon deposits that inevitably build up on engine parts.
