What spark plugs do you use for a Duel Fuel Falcon AU?

And what gap do you use?

I have used those plugs, tried with 1.0 & 0.8 gaps, run ok for me. I've currently got some non resistor plugs in, can't remember what they are, with a 0.9 gap & they are a bit better again, except for the ignition wine i can hear at low volumes in my stereo. I was thinking about changing back to the ZGR's and trying a 0.7gap & see what happens, if it's too close or if it works good.

I've got a good coil, cap & rotor, near new dizzy & IC & E race series leads. I run LPG 90% of the time.

Cheers

Use a bp6ey-11NGK dont use zgr as they are still a resister type plug which require a heap more spark to fire correctly

AU1 needs a 0.9 gap.
AU2/3 can use a 1.1 gap.

Thats what I ran in my AU S1 Duel Fuel... No probs in the 2 years I had it. Never backfired.

I ended up playing with my gaps a bit, and found a 0.8mm gap on the ZGR6B11 plugs does really well for my setup. I tried std plugs gaped up & 0.8 & they don't run as good as the ZGR's.

You need to be careful about running non resistor plugs in car's with electronic ignition these days.
