BG tech

"The pumps carry a lifetime labor warranty and all the customer pays for is parts costs plus the return shipping. We have an obligation to ensure that the pump is up to the original flow standards so guys do not go out and hurt an engine"

Example of last 2 we had serviced one by BG on on our bench

here are the breakdowns

Sent to Bg for "free larbor lifetime service"
parts 58.60 inbound shipping 10.00 return shipping 16.80 turnaround 2 weeks

Total cost 85.40 without pump 3 weeks ONE PUMP SERVICE

Seal and oring on our bench
parts 8.00 (same manufacturers oring and seal) time 28 mins in and out of car

Both pumps serviced by us, for last 3 years, total cost of servicing less than

70.00 including replacing BG "one way" screws with tamper proof torque ss fastners... That is 70.00 for 6 PUMP services......

It does not take a rocket scientist to figure out where the "Bg free lifetime labor" is paid...............YOUR SMALL PARTS MARGINS ARE OUTRAGEOUS...

We replaced your BG400s with WELDONS, with our savings, and will never come back....after being a customer since the middle 80s
