Re: Spark Plugs differences

Hi Jonathan I don't think its that critical as my DG came with green coil and multi plugs and ran perfectly. I'm still running the wrong plugs (BP6ET) with zero problems :oops: my main problem is about 5 different websites/guides show different plugs and the original Bosch plug listed in my handbook...
