Ashland Inc. has added EasyGDI Fuel System Service for treating and restoring gasoline direct-injection fuel systems to the Valvoline Professional Series of products.
The company says the fuel system service removes carbon deposits from hard-to-reach intake valves, piston tops, cylinder heads and fuel injectors in gasoline direct injection (GDI) engines in just over one hour using basic tools, a simple canister apparatus and shop air.
“This marks a major breakthrough in how GDI fuel systems can be treated and restored by technicians of varied skill and experience levels. It is a sensible investment for both installers and consumers, providing a win-win situation in vehicle service,” says Laura Carpenter, vice president of marketing, installer channels.
The service features an intake cleaner, fuel rail cleaner and a complete fuel system treatment. The company says its unique Power Dispersal Technology is a revolutionary chemical formulation that allows 10 powerful detergents to melt away carbon deposits and circulate to the toughest places to clean in a GDI fuel system without painstaking labor or an intensive dismantle of the engine and fuel system. The results include greatly improved injector flow, improved fuel economy and power, and elimination of rough idle, hesitation and knocking.
“The new fuel system service has been extensively tested and validated by third parties and proven on a wide variety of current market vehicles. Tests have shown a consistent removal of 30-50% of deposits, and in many cases engine components are restored back to bare metal,” says Dr. David Turcotte, technical director for Valvoline.
