I just stuck one in my tractor, 15.5 B&S air cooled, made a noticeable difference. Sounds alot more snappy and goes up hills much better (no bogging). I'm temped to stick them in all my small engines now.....chainsaw/generator/ATV/weedeater. Do they perform well in 2 cycle engines?

ON, Canada eh?
I dunno... They are too new and I'm always hesitant until I start seeing good things, because there are so many gimmic products on the market. Plus it's a PITA to change the spark plugs in my truck so I don't wanna test them and then have to take 'em out if they aren't working well. Thanks for posting this...

I have one installed on my lawn tractor and log splitter. It appears that it starts easier and does not use as much gas.

I have them in 2 push mowers and 1 weedeater and they all start faster and last longer than any of the champion or autolites I used before.

i tried one in my 6.75hp B&S craftsman mower. It would take 3-4 pulls to start it with the E3 plug. The stock Champion plug(5 years old/80+hours btw) would start on the first pull every time. I tossed the E3 in the trash and stuck the old one back in.

I have them on my leafblower and weedeater and they both start on the first pull every time. Seems like it has a little more power and uses slighly less gas.

I have one in my walk behind mower and my snowblower. Good succuss thus far but I can't say that they're any better than the standard Champions that came with the equipment. When I have pulled them out to inspect them, they look as though they're burning lean(whiteish) in both engines. Maybe it's the MMO? My equipment is running very well,(as good as ever I suppose!)

Hey Stevie, They have been around awhile, at least in small engine plugs. It is not too hard to change the plug in my string trimmer That being said, I have not noticed any performance enhancement, or changes in RPM when I put my equipment on a tach. They seem to last longer with less fouling. The biggest bennefit I have found is on my chainsaws, that I run a tad rich intentionally. They resist fouling longer than a CJ7y.....on the other hand I could buy three champions or autolites for the price. I am waiting for the small engine iridium plug for $12 a piece....all of us type A's will run out and buy it and swear our echo blowers run better
