BG 44k or Chevron Techron Concentrated Plus?

BG 44k or Chevron Techron Concentrated Plus?

Some of the guys on e90 tried it on n54/n54 with good results. Getting some start up rough idle, might give this a try. Narrow down to 2 product, has anyone tried it?

Love Techron and use it in all my cars. Buy it at Costco for $15 for a 6 pack.

As a fuel additive? Because either wont do anything for the carbon buildup.

Same here.

How often are you using it?

I used a bottle every 2500 miles or so with my E36... Probably the same for my 1...

I use Lubro Moly Jectron fuel injector cleaner once a month. Seems to keep the car running perfect.

I put a bottle in every 2-3 months. Have been using it in all cars, never a problem.

The BMW Fuel System cleaner used "Techron Technology", I run a bottle of it in my bimmers about once every other month.

How much they charge for a bottle of that? I'll bet its a lot more than the same Chevron techron you can get for a lot cheaper outside a stealer.

The last time I used Chevron Techron, was about 15 years ago in my Porsche 944 Turbo. I guess the stuff works... but in that car what I noticed as I would get onto boost(14.5 psi max)... you could hear some ignition ping and feel the engine have reduced power(slightly). I always fed that car Sunoco 94. I am not really a big fan of Chevron Techron - bc of that ping. While it does clean carbon buildup... I feel it must reduce the octane some what. I also used BG's 44K fuel cleaners on that same car... never felt or heard any changes. Then again... I never had any running issues with that car either. It was "chipped" and made 285 Hp from 2.5L four. Stock was 220 Hp.
