Harmful engine deposits or ‘dirt’ form and build-up over time in a vehicle’s engine. This can cause a loss in performance.
Dirt can form and bake on metal surfaces in much the same way as black sticky dirt can build up in ovens and on barbecues. This is a result of the fuels and lubricants operating under the extreme temperatures and pressures inside the engine.
Dirt is a hidden enemy that could be lurking in your engine. When it builds up on critical engine parts, such as intake valves and fuel injectors, it can contribute to:
A build-up of dirt can create more dirt within the engine – it’s a vicious cycle.
For petrol engines to perform as the manufacturer intended, the critical components that need to be kept clean are the intake valves and the fuel injectors.
In older port fuel injection engines, fuel is sprayed onto the back of intake valves. When dirt builds up on these valves, it can interfere with the evaporation of the fuel. In newer technology direct injection engines, fuel is injected directly into the combustion chamber. The fuel is forced though tiny holes – smaller than the width of a human hair – in the injector tip at high pressure to achieve good evaporation. Dirt that forms and builds up in the fuel injector holes can interfere with this process, restricting fuel flow and leading to an uneven spray which doesn’t burn as efficiently.
As a result your car’s performance may suffer and it may run less effectively with increased fuel consumption. Eventually critical parts of the engine might need repair and dirt could even lead to breakdown.
The advanced formulation of BP Ultimate Unleaded 98 contains millions of molecules that actively drag away this dirt from critical engine parts and carry it through to your combustion chamber where it is harmlessly burnt. In addition, Ultimate’s advanced molecules form a protective coating on the metal surfaces to help stop dirt forming again.
BP Ultimate Unleaded 98 contains BP’s best ever dirt-busting technology and can bust the dirt in your engine in just 2 tanks of fuel.*
