I think you will find you are wrong. We are talking EL not ED here.


Playing with timing on an EL at Heathcote recently, found that about 4 deg BTDC did the job well. Anymore and its likely to ping and end up using more fuel.

I have tried this on my EL Ghia with BP Ultimate and found ZERO difference to performance and fuel economy. My car is very sensitive to even 1 or 2 deg of ignition timing change.
