    Bought one for my trimmer in the early spring of 2007 and it's still going strong. I'll let you know if and when I ever replace it.

    Their great plugs, I'm not sure if you can cross referance them for V-twin engines. Their is a heat range that each engine & plug was dyno'ed for. In a EFI configeration I would feel more comfortable using these plugs; because the ECM could lean the engine out or make it richer if necessary vs the non-EFI carb engines; or these plugs could cause them to run hotter. I just hate all the variables you can change trying to get more HP/Torque with gasoline powerplants

    Tried one, it did not work. The mower was hard to start, plus would run on after being shut off. It also used more fuel.

    Just another gimmick plain and simple. I wont get into it but basicaly one plug is no better than another. Same goes for platinum, V groove etc etc.

    Wow, that's quite a testimonial. How many hours do you put on this trimmer a season, what kind of trimmer, and what kind of oil? Dino or synthetic?

    I have one in my husky trimmer right now. The plug that was in it was going bad I guess, was getting to be a pain to start most of the time, 3 to 5 pulls at least, all day. Now I usually fires in 1 or 2 pulls again, but, it did that when the last plug was new as well. (old plug was a Bosch). I had the E3 laying around from a year or so ago when I tried it in another trimmer that was running bad, but that one turned out to be a bad coil or something, returned the trimmer, they gave me a new one.
