Hello all,


A while ago, I asked about the E3 spark plugs, and just tried them in my string trimmer and push mower. 


In the trimmer(poulan pro 125)(replacing a champion RCJ6Y plug), it started in 2 pulls vs. 10, I didn't notice any power gains, but it does idle a little higher and it doesn't bog down under throttle for the first minute anymore.


In the push mower(cub cadet 6.5 hp)(replacing a torch plug), it starts quicker(electric start) and has a noticeable power gain.


I won't be checking for any reduction in fuel usage, I have no base to go from, and I burn less than a gallon or 2 in each per year. The starting, idleing and power gain could  be from being new plugs, but I'll keep an eye on them and report back if I find anything else.

A fellow in my Gold Wing motorcycle club stated he has installed these plugs (E3's) in his M/C and can tell a increase in performance.

Just be MAKE SURE to fill out the warrenty card and send it in.  We used them once in a 9,5 Saab with bad results

That would be the real test, see if the benefits are still there with a regular new plug.

It's possible with the multi point design that it is less likely to gas foul on start up.
