Spark plug technologies that boost fuel efficiency.

  • Fuel Efficiency > Spark Plugs > Pulse plugs boost horsepower, torque and fuel economy - PulStar pulse plugs look and fit like traditional spark plugs, but are exponentially more powerful. Spark plugs discharge only 40 watts of power while PulStar discharges 1 million watts! This high power pulse discharge ignites the compressed air/fuel mixture in the cylinder more precisely and completely, producing up to 12% more torque and 20% better fuel economy.
    • Jerry Wills Testimonial on Pulstar Plugs - Driving 24,000 miles in a 1999 Chevy K1500 Suburban since August 29th, 2007, Jerry Wills saw his mileage increased by around 40%, going from 10-11 MPG without the plugs to an average of 15+ mpg with the plugs, saving him more than $2,500.

Companies

  • SmartPlug is a self-contained ignition system that may be retrofitted to existing spark-ignition and compression-ignition engines. The SmartPlug consists of a prechamber containing a catalytic heating element. The flame torch covers the entire combustion chamber. Video
  • Firestorm Spark Plug - The revolutionary design of FireStorm spark plugs creates an electric plasma that fills the entire combustion chamber like a firestorm. Gain: More horsepower; 44-50% increase in mpg; Dramatic decrease in emissions. Eliminate: Smog pump; Catalytic converter; Exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) systems; Misfire/hesitation/detonation/stutter and stumble. The bad news is that you can't buy a set of FireStorm spark plugs anywhere right now.
  • Sonic Spark Plugs - They look like normal spark plugs, but they have a powerful ultrasound generator in the tip. This shatters gasoline mist microseconds before it burns, energizing the fuel droplets before combustion. Your car, truck or motorcycle will have more power and get better mileage because combustion is dramatically improved. http://www.supersonicspark.com/
  • Secret High Efficiency Spark Plug - WeaponX Performance innovative spark plug uses an exclusive new Firing Technology that improves overall engine efficiency to levels never before seen in typical street oriented internal combustion engines. The ExtremeX spark plugs unique design and cutting-edge firing technology, the WeaponX Iridium is able to ignite the air/fuel mixture approximately 35% longer than traditional spark plugs resulting in a vastly improved combustion event all while maximizing the utilization of the energy contained in the fuel and in the vehicles electrical system. This increased efficiency will help drivers increase their gas mileage by as much as 24%.

  • NGK V-Power Spark Plugs - Advanced V-groove center electrode provides optimum performance and fuel efficiency. High amp, low resistance for the best spark.
  • Spark Plug Reviews for Halo, Splitfire, NGK and Bosch Platinum +4
  • Torque Master Spark Plugs claim to be the only plug capable of increasing engine performance. Torque Master in Europe - More horsepower. Better economy.
  • Side Gapping Spark Plugs - Improve spark with standard plugs instead of paying triple for Split-Fire® type plugs
  • E3 Spark Plugs - with DiamondFIRE technology increases the amount of combustion pressure created during each power stroke of an engine, which results in a marked increase in power output, fuel economy, and reduced emissions in all gasoline engines.
  • Nology Silver™ - STOP...playing around with spark plugs that feature Iridium electrodes, Platinum electrodes, Copper electrodes, fine wire electrodes, split electrodes, ring electrodes or multiple electrodes and get serious with silver electrodes! Silver is the best electrical and thermal conductor of any metal.
  • DirectHits capacitors fit between the spark plug (non-resistor type) and ignition wire to amplify the spark. Most spark plugs put out about .02 to.06 amps of peak current (limited by coil, cable and plug resistance) in the spark for a few hundred microseconds. DirectHits boost the output of the spark plug to some 500 amps for a few nanoseconds. The larger initial plasma more readily starts the burn of the fuel in the cylinder, resulting in more power and better fuel economy. Able to ignite lean air/fuel mixtures. The ultra-short spark duration does not impose excessive wear on the plugs.
  • Cryogenicaly treated spark plugs improved performance and reduced emissions

Research & Development

  • Fuel Efficiency > Spark Plugs >
    Laser igniters could spell the end for the humble spark plug - Researchers from Japan's National Institutes of Natural Sciences are creating laser igniters that could one day replace spark plugs in automobile engines. Not only would these lasers allow for better performance and fuel economy, but cars using them would also create less harmful emissions. (GizMag; April 21, 2011)
  • Laser Spark Plug for Lean Burn Gas Engines - NETL demonstrated the latest version of their laser spark plug designed for lean burn gas (natural gas and hythane) reciprocating engines. Leaner air-fuel conditions deliver higher engine efficiency and lower emissions, but require increased spark energy. In laser-spark ignition, high-energy photons are focused to create a plasma breakdown. (Green Car Congress; Jan. 11, 2008)
