The official POST YOUR SPARK PLUGS thread!!
Hello everyone! As you are all aware, a beloved member of us, Cantburn, has had a potentially serious accident recently with his spark plugs melting as a probable result of HHO. As this is NOT the truth for all vehicles always, you never know when it could happen, so don't push your car to the limits. Every vehicle is different, and that's why I am able to get 70mpg and wulfram 80mpg, for example.
DO NOT EVER PUSH YOUR CAR BEYOND SAFE LIMITATIONS THAT YOU HAVE SET FOR YOURSELF!!

I strongly encourage you to check your spark plugs RIGHT NOW and take pictures of them and then post them on this thread. Doing so will assist in further research and solutions for finding a good safety precaution, or possibly a good brand of plugs to use with HHO setups. I'm not a master at WHY every plug is different, but I DO know that each plug reacts differntly to their situations. Some plugs like aluminum blocks, for example, while others (platinum I think) do not yield better results in the same material type.

Anyways, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!! post pictures of your spark plugs in this thread. I want to see a LOT of plugs from MANY users, so get on it NOW! It doesn't even take much time depending on your vehicle, most are bolt off and bolt on. Please also be sure to include details like brand, car make + model, miles on plugs, etc. Any information you provide at once with your pictures CAN NOT get split up, while information posted later could get lost in a jumble.

Thank you for your cooperation, and I wish the best success to us all!

Marty, what's the information about your plugs/ignition system? The more you tell us, the closer we can get to a good solution. Please let us know what you drive, cylinders, HHO setup, spark plug's age (mileage), ignition system, etc. Anything you can share is better than nothing, and your picture also helps a bit too!

Thank you for your contribution, but please edit your post and add some more info!

I was interested in your opinion on the condition of the plug before I posted any further info on my particular setup, because I think you may be suprised.........or maybe not. Here goes:

1993 4 cylinder BMW 318i SE with 162000+ miles on the clock. Distrubutor ignition. Spark plug age unknown
HHO Generator - Smack derivative (not installed in car yet) - 1 litre per minute at 13 amps hot
EFIE - Self built poor man's unit - Set at 50mv's normal driving, 100-150mv's in traffic. Been used since August 2nd
Baseline mileage - Approx 32 mpg. With EFIE only approx 38 mpg

Marty, isn't that bad to only have an EFIE with no fuel-saving device such as HHO? I always thought that was a big no-no, can anyone confirm this?

Depends on how far you lean it out. A Hypertech programmer can lean it out to a point with no ill-effect, though I don't know if number gains are that high. I ran my '64 pretty lean for a number of years. A little over 300K with no problems. 20 mpg with a 4 bbl carb.
