Heh, they're glowplugs like on model aero engines, can't believe they got a patent.

Patent office doesn't try very hard (or at all) on their prior art searches, but when prior art is obvious it should be easy to kill a patent.

I tend to keep fresh spark plugs in my car and swapped out the stock NGK plugs that had about 8,000 miles on them with the pulstar plugs and didn't notice any positive change, I did start to have my engine die at idle but that only lasted about 500 miles, I then got my electric car and haven't gone thru enough tanks of gas to get a solid number but it would appear that there are no changes, I'm tempted to put them in my moms car without telling her as she has a set driving style and mostly just drives to and from work and has always kept a gas log.

In the Hondas I've owned I've tried other brand plugs but never had any work better then the factory recommended NGKs.

Pulstar Plugs

I was just checking out the Pulstar Plugs and followed a link on their FAQ page. Here is the link:

Doesn't sound like much of an improvement to me.

Pretty thorough and pretty much a wash.
