MVT Solutions Validates Fuel Economy Of BG Products Additives

LAS CRUCES, N.M., Feb. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ --A MVT Solutions (MVTS), a provider of breakthrough fuel economy testing, consulting and real-world analysis for the trucking industry today announced that BG 2-Part Heavy Duty Engine & Fuel System Performance Restoration Service (BG 2-Part HD Service) from BG Products, Inc. is now MVTS Solutions Certifieda?? as having validated fuel economy savings."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. 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.MVTS Certified Test results on the BG 2-Part HD Service showed a 1.31% improvement in fuel efficiency on a Detroit Diesel DD15 engine and a 2.11% 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. "We were surprised by the blockage initially found on the fuel injectors considering the engines were in perfect running condition," said Bear. "Additionally, since these results were achieved on long haul duty cycle engines, we anticipate greater improvements in engines with higher idle time or stop-and-go duty cycles due to the higher likelihood of carbon buildup and aftertreatment problems."
