ok thanks, can buy them from repco i guess?

is there much difference in not gapping it to 8 mil? ie keeping it at 11? i suppose at 8 the spark is closer so for lpg means better burning and less chance of backfires?

re my tank i'm not sure how many kms. petrol was about 350 a tank and i had been running it on LPG for about 150 kms before i heared a couple of backfores now i'm waiting for the stores to open on monday for leads and plugs. but i'd say very similar figure to petrol re economy

Dont forget when gapping plugs that a lot of feeler guages are actually in the old Imperial measurement.
0.040 is what you will hear people call 40 thou , thats is 40 thousandths of an inch.
40 thou is very very close to 1mm.
1.1mm is approx 0.042
0.8mm would be approx 0,036
Im pretty sure my calculations are corect. Feel free to correct me if Im wrong.
