Valvoline Announces New Product
Feb. 16, 2016—On Monday, Valvoline announced the launch of a solution for treating and restoring gasoline direct-injection fuel systems with the EasyGDI Fuel System Service featuring Power Dispersal Technology.
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 an 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,” said Laura Carpenter, VP of marketing, installer channels.
The service features an intake cleaner, fuel rail cleaner and a complete fuel system treatment. The unique technology, a revolutionary chemical formulation, allows 10 powerful detergents to melt away carbon deposits and circulate to the toughest places to clean in a GDI fuel system without an extreme amount of labor or an intensive dismantle of the engine and fuel system.
“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,” said Dr. David E. Turcotte, technical director, Valvoline.
