Fuel Additives

Fuel additives are designed to help maintain the cleanliness of critical engine parts. The cleaner your engine is, the better it runs and the less pollution it produces. At BP, we pride ourselves on our proprietary additive, Invigorate®.

The most common additives used by BP:

Detergents, dispersants and fuel-deposit-control additives. All of these help clean and prevent engine deposits, which in turn can restore your gas mileage lost to a dirty engine. Fuel-deposit-control additives are in all gasolines, as required by the EPA. Additionally, there is the automotive industry’s voluntary "TOP TIER" program for gasoline detergency standards. TOP TIER requires detergency levels higher than the minimum level set by the EPA.

Corrosion inhibitors and metal deactivators. As they work their way through your engine's four-cycle process, they're helping to prevent rust and corrosion.

Antioxidants and stabilizers. Antioxidants prevent the breakdown of gasoline while stabilizers do just that: stabilize fuel for storage.

7 easy ways to keep your car running smoothly
Choose a gas like BP gasoline with Invigorate®
that, with continuous use, can help fight performance-robbing deposits on critical engine parts, helping to maintain engines and restore fuel economy.*
Get regular tune-ups.
In addition to using BP gasoline with Invigorate, tune-ups help keep engines young.**
Drive smart.
Gas mileage usually decreases at speeds over 60 mph, so by observing the speed limit, you can save gas. On long trips, cruise control can also help (when safe to engage).***
Inflate your tires properly.
In addition to improving your gas mileage, properly inflated tires last longer and give you a safer drive.***
Lighten up already.
Extra weight decreases gas mileage. Remove unnecessary items from your trunk, and, if you have a removable roof rack that's never used, take it off.***
Turn off the car.
Idling is a waste of fuel. When it's safe to do so, it's better to turn off the engine and restart a few minutes later.
Give your car regular washes.
A clean vehicle helps protect against body damage caused by heat, bugs, emissions, salt and the effects of time. And to help clean critical engine parts, use BP gasoline with Invigorate.
