There is a way to protect the engine even further – BG MOA
About BG MOA
BG MOA prevents sludge build up and reduces engine wear.
This oil additive also helps your oil protect the engine better and last longer.
It can help improve fuel efficiency, as well.
During a BG MOA oil change, our technicians change the oil and oil filter and add the BG MOA.
This supplement offers great protection for stop-start engines as well as turbocharged engines, which are becoming more prominent on so many vehicles today because of fuel economy and power.
Some people talk about oil additives taking regular oil and turning it into synthetic oil. That isn’t the case. The BG MOA takes regular oil and not only gives more protection but helps it last longer.
All of the stop and go traffic many of us experience while commuting in Northern Virginia is really hard on these engines.
If you’re like a lot of people who miss their oil change interval, this helps keep your engine protected, even during your busy time of life.
Another myth is that you can’t add BG MOA to synthetic oil. That’s not true. For many years, we have been using synthetic oil in oil vehicles and do add the MOA to it. The additive just helps protect the engine even better.
Even though it does help extend the life of oil and its synthetic fluid – which you would normally have a longer oil change interval anyway – we still suggest changing the oil at about 5,000 miles for synthetic oil, or whenever your car’s manufacturer recommends. Because of the stop and go traffic, you want to keep the engine clean and prevent expensive repairs down the road.
The amount of money it costs to add MOA to your oil change – whether it’s conventional oil or synthetic oil – is minute compared to the cost of replacing an engine.
Engines today are made up of variable valve timing, multiple camshafts and turbo chargers that have bearings with tight tolerances. Preventing sludge build up and making sure those parts are working correctly is one of the best things you can do to maintain your car.
BG Lifetime Protection Plan
If you have your oil changed at HomeTowne and decide to have BG MOA added, ask a service adviser if your vehicle qualifies for the BG Lifetime Protection Plan.
It covers several areas, including the engine, power steering, transmission and brakes.
We had a customer who had regular BG Transmission Fluid services performed on their Dodge, which are notorious for having transmission problems. It had nothing to do with the fluid, they just broke. This customer did have a transmission problem and BG held into its end of the bargain.
So, there can be benefits with using BG services.
