More than 400,000 gallons of fuel to be recalled from Oklahoma City metro

Published 3:10 PM CDT Aug 30, 2016
OKLAHOMA CITY —Magellan Midstream Partners is recalling more than 400,000 gallons of fuel from retailers in the Oklahoma City metro, officials said.
The gas is being recalled because it contains unacceptably high levels of ethanol that was distributed from the Midstream facility in Oklahoma City. The fuel could contain as much as 30 percent ethanol, Oklahoma Corporation Commission officials said.






1. Perform a BG Total Fuel System Service on the vehicle's injection and induction system.

2. Install BG #2913 BG Ethanol Defender Kit. Provides protection for the next 7,500 miles. Ethanol and gasoline product corrosive acids.

It’s important for a vehicle’s battery to be maintained regularly to be able to support the increasingly high demand for electrical power in modern vehicles.

The BG Battery Service prevents corrosion and preserves the battery’s full power for easy, immediate starting. We recommend a BG Battery Service once a year to extend the life and improve reliability of a vehicle’s battery.


When it comes to safety, brakes are the most important component in a vehicle. BG’s high quality brake products and equipment will ensure quieter brake pads and a safer, longer lasting and more efficient braking system.


Condensation in a vehicle’s air conditioning system promotes fungus, mold and bacterial growth that is blown into the passenger compartment. Also, if there’s a clacking sound coming from a vehicle’s A/C, the oil has been depleted.

BG’s line of climate control products and equipment will eliminate odors and control contaminants — bacteria, mold, spores, fungi, and road grime — in vehicle air conditioning and heating systems.


Because engine overheating is the leading cause of roadside breakdowns, BG attaches special emphasis to our comprehensive set of cooling system products and tools that ensure reliable performance of vehicle’s cooling system components.

The BG Cooling System Service keeps a vehicle’s engine cool all year long.


In diesel fuel systems, deposits can rapidly accumulate in the fuel lines, injector pump, fuel injectors and combustion chambers. This causes a number of drivability issues, or even engine failure.

Unmatched in the industry, BG’s line of diesel fuel products and equipment can restore diesel fuel economy or solve nearly any diesel fuel system issue.


Heat, moisture, extreme pressure and loads cause gear oil to break down or to be contaminated, leading to lubrication failure and worn drive line gears.

Too often overlooked in maintenance programs,  drive line products and equipment contribute meaningfully to the overall economy and efficiency of your vehicle’s operation.


High operating temperatures, combined with the increasing regularity of stop-and-go driving, cause rapid depletion of critical oil additives. Without these protective additives, oxidation can reduce oil to heavy, black sludge in the crankcase, oil screens, oil passages, rocker arms and other critical areas of the engine.

Used at oil change intervals, BG’s line of engine products will safely and effectively clean and remove deposits and fortify new oil for optimum performance and engine protection.


Deposits accumulate on intake valves, injectors, ports, fuel injectors and combustion chambers causing loss of power, rough idle, hesitation, misfire, pinging, knocking, poor gas mileage and hard starting.

BG fuel system cleaners and conditioners will clean fuel injectors, throttle body, plenum and air intake, intake valves and ports and remove combustion chamber deposits.

BG fuel products  restore fuel economy, reduce environmentally damaging exhaust emissions, and restore the fun of like-new drivability to your vehicle.


The power steering pump generates extremely high temperatures and pressures that can cause failure without notice. High quality BG power steering fluid will make sure that doesn’t happen.

BG power steering products remove residues from the entire steering system, ensuring smooth, quiet operation while preventing leaks, sticking and wear of parts.


BG’s specialty products include automotive greases and aerosols and even vehicle cleaning products!

These products are categorized as “specialty” because they are not included in one of our primary BG Automotive Maintenance Services. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t just as useful and important to meeting your vehicle’s maintenance needs.


When transmissions fail, the likely cause is breakdown of automatic transmission fluid (ATF). BG’s diverse line of transmission products, including high quality ATF, will stand the test of time. Which means no more worry about transmission failure due to poor, broken-down transmission fluid.
