last time ngk xr6 plugs, ZGR6B-11, were given to me for the el when i asked for el dual fuel plugs, this time at a different store the person gave me just the standard ngk plugs for el's, BPR5EY-11.

what are the correct plugs to use in an el dual fuel?
ZGR6B-11
or
BPR5EY-11
or other

Well with LPG you are ment to go 1 range colder than the standard plugs and give it a smaller gap. Well thats what we do at work

slightly off topic (saves making 2 similer posts), i also have a gased ef falcon, i have heard the ba/f xr6 turbo plugs are really good. im not sure if true/false thats why i ask.

if it is true question is where and how much

or is the ef/l xr plug the way to go

The E-Series motor uses an unusual really long reach plug. The ZGR6B-11 is the XR/LPG plug, its slightly shorter in the center electrode. The BPR5EY-11 is a standard style plug, the "Y" indicates a V-groove on the center electrode.

Everytime the electrode is shortened it is like retarding the timing.
