    which brand of spark plugs seem to last the longest or are the best, for all applications.

    My dealer recommended using Honda plugs in my Shindaiwa equipment and also for my Red Max BP Blower. I have found they work better and last longer.

    For my gas mowers, I have tried several, and they all seem to work fine. I'm glad I have 2 diesels now, I don't have that problem at all. :)

    I USED TO RUN CHAMPION. NOW I RUN NGK IN ALL MY EQUIPMENT. THEY ARE STANDARD IN MOST 2CYCLE MINE ANYWAY. I'VE TRIED THE $8.00 SPLIT FIRE PLUGS AND DIDN'T SEE ANY GAIN IN FUEL MILEAGE OR POWER SO WHY SPEND THE $$$$$$$$. I GUESS USE WHAT HAS WORKED BEST FOR YOU, SAY IN YOUR CAR OR TRUCK.
    GOOD LUCK,

    I stick with what the engine manuel requires. Don't want to run to hot of a plug, alot of cutters around here run Gold Plat--but thats to hot,very hard on them pistons. Marks Mowing Service

    I read an article about spark plugs and 2 stroke engines. It said split-fire do absolutly nothing for a 2 stroke engine. Like MOwman said, save your money.
