BG44K Fuel System Cleaner?

I am considering running a can or two of BG44K through the gas tank IOT clean the ///M3's fuel system. I know that the effectiveness of fuel cleaners is a hotly debated topic, so I'm hoping this thread doesn't go that direction.

I am specifically interested to know if anyone has tried the BG44K product in their ///M3? Any information about your experience with this product would be appreciated!

Finally, I have also been considering a more aggressive fuel system treatment...something like plugging the http://www.amazon.com/OTC-7448A-Inje...H1H1QHHHY5TSDS into the fuel rail, and running a cleaning product through the injectors. Anyone ever done this with success?

I appreciate your comments and advice. Thanks again !!

Bg44k has been out in one form or another for 20 years. It did no harm and no noticeable good when I used it on another car 20 years ago.

Regardless of which cleaner you want to use, the best methodology is to put it in the tank, fill the tank, then run the car on a road trip so the engine is hot and the cleaner can work for a long time. Regular short commuting won't be nearly as effective as a long trip.

The best time to use the fuel cleaner is right before you change the oil. Any blow-by junk gets out of the crankcase with the old oil.

Thanks for the input! I plan on running a can through the engine in about 3000 miles when I go to change the oil. I appreciate the info!!
