BG 44k fuel additive

I got a bottle of "bg 44k" from a local mechanic and its supposed to be a real good fuel system cleaner. Anybody used it? Is good or bad??

Yes, it's got a decent reputation I suppose, I've tried it, didn't notice any difference after using it and I don't think that it's worth $20 a can.

If you can get it in your area, dump 5 gallons of B-100 biodiesel fuel into your truck every now and then. If you've got an older truck, it will effectively remove deposits from your fuel system-
To the point where you might need to replace your fuel filter for all the gunk that gets dissolved. Now, *that's* a fuel system cleaner. And it's a super injector lube, too, which the 44K isn't.

I've used BG 44k in gas engines, but never a diesel. Is it even suggested for diesels?

The instructions on the bottle I have said to add it to diesel. No mention of gas.

ive seen and felt tremendous results with the bg44 triple clean system for gas engines on my buddys firebird and my other friends toyota, the best hundred dollars they ever spent, interested in the stuff they make for diesel.

bk44 can be used in both gas and diesel, they sell a quart sized bottle for diesel but according to my local rep its mearly a larger bottle for larger tanks on diesel trucks, bg makes a product called diesel care, which is pump through a machine and run thourgh the motor like there gas version but none of my local dealers have the machine, the closest dealrer is 100 miles east of my town, in the event im traveling that way i'll schedule an appontiontment a try there product and get back with everybody on the results.
