some kind of copper spark plug performs best even though they wear out quicker.

Copper plug. OEM Motorcraft or Autolite = to them. No need in all that other fancy BS.

I love they way people throw out their opinion of spark plugs usage without anything to back them up. Ok, what about Champion! my lawn mower runs great all summer long... thats about as scientific as you guys get!! pfffffftttttt
