Can The E3 Spark Plugs Improve My Car Mileage?
The E3 Spark Plugs saved me. My wallet at least. My car's mileage has improved ever since i installed the E3 Spark Plugs into my fuel guzzler of a car. Some of you may be skeptical of putting new gizmos into your car but my wallet was bleeding from the fuel consumption and I was willing to try anything.
I drive a big car. A car that I was told would be reliable and fuel efficient. It is a Toyota Camry. After driving it for 3 months, I have not proven the reliability part but I am as sure as I can ever be that my big car is a fuel guzzler. It did not give me 28 MPG (12 km/litre) as advertised, instead i was getting 16 MPG (7km/litre). With a 70 litres fuel capacity for my car, this meant a difference of 350km. That translate to 50 litres at the miserable 7km/litre mileage. At the current sky high fuel costs, that is US$74 more each time I fill up my car. And I visit the petrol kiosk twice a week. It was really draining my wallet. (hope the maths did not turn you off)
Desperate, I took the recommendations of my mechanic and tried out the E3 Spark Plugs. Am I glad that I did.
How Does The E3 Spark Plug Works?
The E3 Spark Plugs claimed to produce a faster flame front and pressure rise so that it is able to burn more of the fuel to power the piston before the fuel is vented off by the exhaust valve. This is achieved by their DiamondFire Technology which is made up of the below 3 components:
- Directing the flame to the spark zone faster by opening the section at the top of the electrode.
- Projecting the flame farther forward into the combustion chamber to get a more efficient burn.
- Forced edge-to-edge spark discharge to improve the spark discharge.
These 3 design changes by E3 helped to produced the E3 advanced DiamondFire Technology spark plugs.
Enough about the technology..back to my personal test of the plugs.
My Experience Testing The E3 Spark Plugs
The day that I installed the E3 Spark Plugs, I immediately felt an instant performance increase. My big fat car started to run smoother, a quieter idle and the throttle response become quicker on the foot. Yah, no more delay in response!
I have gone through about 1 month of trying out the e3 spark plugs. With about 5 tank change, my mileage is reflected as 25 MPG (11km/litre). This is a huge savings for me! I am saving about US$50+ dollars per top up. This is a life saver for me.
I know some of you may have also tried the e3 spark plugs but did not get the same results that i did. My take is that for cars which are already operating at the manufacturer's specifications, the fuel savings will probably not be noticeable. However for cars like mine, which are sub-optimal, the performance boost can be pretty obvious.
Further Testing Needed For The E3 Spark Plugs
I will also be installing the E3 Spark Plugs into my wife's car. She is driving a Ford Focus and I have not really hear her complain much about her mileage. But I am curious about how the E3 Spark Plugs will work on a American car. I will update when I get some results about the e3 spark plugs again.
