    Hey Toddy I Have A Question For Ya... I Have A Pontiac Vibe, Which Uses Toyotas 2.4lt I4.. It uses iridium plugs, can i use the E3 plug ? and what performance gains and losses will i have?.. thank you

    Thanks for the Video. I was curious what the street price for each one of the spark plugs are as the $/performance ratio does matter.

    Appreciate the great effort thanks, but on the title you say platinum, then in the video you say iridium, bu the NGK plug you show is neither of those? the 'R' refers to resistance for noise cancelling.

    I have always wondered what difference the spark plug gap makes. Maybe do a similar test with a standard plug and vary the plug gap, may be starting with 0.20mm gap then increasing the gap size by 0.20mm until you get to maybe 1.2mm gap.Will there be a difference ?I remember a two stroke bike I had in the early 80s, it was a b'stard to start with the default 0.75mm gap, reducing the gap to 0.5 -0.6 made it easier to start and the engine idled better. Dont know if it reduced overall power as it was a 185cc two stroke single with a RIP snorting 16

    Very thorough test. It would have been interesting to see the Nology wires and/or the Nology plugs, since they are the only one's I know of made from silver. Silver is the highest conductor of electricity of any metal. Iridium is used I believe mostly because of longevity between tune ups. Also, a test of emissions of each would be interesting although might be complicated.

    Do you have any coolant additive videos? To see which brands actually drops normal coolant temps?

    I have used both the NGK and E3 on my 2000 Jeep Cherokee XJ and I will say that I do get a little better gas mileage with the E3s.

    So I fell asleep watching your video on tyre inflators. Woke up, first thing I saw was a Winnebago racing down a field. Was damn confused haha.

    Last week I buy a set of E3 because Bosh wasn’t on stock. But still thinking. No I will Replaced no doubt. Thanks

    I have always used E3 spark plugs and always felt the vehicle to have more hump. I always thought it was placebo, but, this confirms it.

    I used to work for Alfa Romeo. They use NGK in their twin spark engines with a plug change schedule of 60,000 miles. We had one customer who went 100,000 miles on the same set. They were expensive plugs at the time...£140 for a full set of 8.

    The iridium plugs were developed for durability, not performance per se.

    i noticed more power from the first vehicle i put e3's in, a '93 honda. .so i put e3's in the '77 chev van, the '96 honda, '96 toyota, '86 toyota. .why you did'nt measure horsepower ? .however in a roundabout way you did, as a side effect of run times, but we all want measured horsepower. .which translates in this case to greater distance travelled per fuel quantity

    The E3 plug reduced the engine vibration by half compared to the stock plug and faster starting I have the harbor freight 180psi gas air compressor I mounted the compressor on a plastic pallet with casters to move the compressor around

    Very interesting as always, gotta crunch some math to see if or how your finding can equate to auto fuel savings. And, the Farm-A-Bago is freaking Awsome!

    Anyone running pulsars or e3 in outboards? I use the NGK 7HS in my 00 Johnson 150. OEM says to use Champion but NGK gapped at .30 seems fine. I wonder how the Pulsars do in 2 stroke mix.

    Can E3 sparkplugs be gapped to different sizes with that gigantic multi-pronged electrode?

    Keep in mind most of these engines only had 1 cylinder. If you have a V8 it'll make 8 times the difference. (Yea thats called math)

    Impressive work!! One thing I saw was that on the start with a full fuel-cell the engine itself shook gas out of the vent holes. This could have flawed the results, although it would be minor. I would recommend a fill line only 3/4 of the way up or so if you wanted, but hindsight is always 2020 right... Love the vids tho, the work-to-video ratio is one of the best I’ve seen on YouTube. Keep it up!

    I tried Pulstar's in my 1997 Miata and it would not run right at all!!! Put them in my lawn tractor and it seamed stronger.

    Thank god you ran the iridium too. People always run the iridium for performance. But in your fuel efficiency test it was the same as the copper.

    Electricity is lazy, it’ll take the easiest path. Those E3 plugs with multiple tips it really only sparks to one. Even ngk v plugs that are split I’ll only spark on one side. Think of those small Tesla coils that shock you, walk at it with your finger and it’ll shock you but it’ll barely hurt. Walk at it with your forearm and see how much stronger it is. Most powerful spark comes from a flat copper plug
