Be sure to wear the correct attire while purging to maximize the cleaning properties of the product:

Or you could read the factory shop manual on the proper care of your injection system. The manuals are available online, read them for free, check the FAQs for this forum.

-my last post in this thread, thanks.

Do you have a stock # of some sort? There is an Advance auto right nearby, but the place is run by the most incredible retards, I hate to ask as they'll say "No such thing" or "that's illegal!" or "use gas injector cleaner, it's cheaper and works better!"

That's terrible, I'm not going to buy anything from DG, if he price gouges this much on one product, how much does he on the rest?


People do have to make on products they sell. Does his price include shipping?

In Diesel Giant's Defense....

...he does provide infinitely more in-person, real-time product support, via this forum, than you'll get from ANY retailer/wholesaler. That being said, my imperative as a consumer (highest quality at lowest price) will still guide me in my purchases.

Ordered from DG

I had a great result ordering from dieselgiant.com I bought the "fix the whole damm car kit" since I just bought my 240d. Best part is his web page has links and procedures with pictures, and his phone number, because, yes, I STILL had a question. Also he's about 150 miles away, so ground shipping is next day.

I've seen DP on eBay, never in a local shop. Live in a small town, no import places I know of.

Also, I was very, very impressed with the results of running the two can of DP through my 240d with 166k on it. Even my wife noticed the smoother idle. Afterwards I replaced both filters and every piece of rubber in the fuel system, and the tank strainer. Will use seafoam or similar on an everyother tank basis.

Thank to all here for your knowledge and concerns, lets all try to get along.

Chuck.

MB won't recommend anything that doesn't have a three pointed star on the label, regardless of how effective, or ineffective it is. (in fact, many of the 'recommended' three pointed star products aren't that effective either).

However, a friend of mine is a head technician at the largest official MB dealership in his state, and when older diesels come into the shop with symptoms pointing to a dirty injection system, and the owner doesn't want rebuilt injectors, guess what they do?.. You won't like it... They do a.. diesel purge..

peace,
sam

I did a similar thing with my 300D the other day. Sitting still I reved the engine to close to about 4800 and it blew out this huge black cloud. Did that a couple times, each time the cloud got less dense. Went back behind the car after I did it to find carbon all over the ground extending back about eight feet from the exhaust pipe

Idled a bit smoother after I did it too!

I highly recommend Olympus Imported Auto Parts for all this stuff (http://www.olyonline.com/), especially if you live on the East Coast (they are based in Virginia).

They have *excellent* and quick customer service, good prices on Lubro-Moly stuff, and their shipping charges are some of the lowest I've ever seen for UPS ground. I sent them a personal check, and they sent out my order as soon as they received the check, even without waiting for the check to clear. When I got a pack of Lubro-Moly goodies from them, they were wrapped so neatly and packed so tightly in bubble wrap that it shows how much care they put into each shipment.

I looked at InterAuto Parts San Diego, and I think the best deal is if you buy a case of the stuff from them... Their prices are the lowest I've seen, but they RIP you on shipping charges - which is probably their way of compensating for the low prices they post! From my determination, I'd only buy from them if I need a case of Diesel Purge or Diesel Hi-Test, but otherwise the total charge is hardly any cheaper than what you'd pay at Olympus.

Just my .02

4 cans at Olympus.. $28.16+ $5.00=33.16

Interauto: 4 cans $23.80+14.85 to ship=$38.65

DieselGiant= more expensive, but GREAT customer service..

Probably finishes off a few return lines.. Better to see them leaking when you have the hood open, than buzzing down your local expressway, totally unaware..

I guess I'll be trying some, in the near future..

I'm mainly bumping the thread to make sure there's not anything better, deal wise..
