I came to this old thread trying to help 540Indiana out with his upcoming V8 VCG DIY:
- E39 (1997 - 2003) > Doing VCG tomorrow

But, I'm curious about organic chemicals ... so ...

Am I correct in inferring that this thread intimates BMW used to sell something called Gummi Pfledge to lubricate the VCG, and now they sell Carbaflo, both of which are primarily glycerin?

I just bought a 4 ounce bottle of glycerin at the pharmacy section of a local Target department store.

Note: I was really looking for glycerol or a glycol for the smoke machine I am making - but the point is that you can get glycerin at a pharmacy if you need it for the VCG.
