    Default New NGK Platinums for my Platz (pics attached)

    hi guys. went to pindi over the eid and came back today. planned to change the spark plugs of ma platz so contacted Jehanzeb (@jz here on PW). initially ordered Bosch Super 4 (4 tips) but then changed ma mind to NGK Platinums (for some personal reasons ). have fixed them today. wud let u guys know abt the experience in coming few wks here Inshallah. attaching the pics before the installment. just one question, what shud be the gap for CNG setup in my car. heard that for CNG the plug gap is less for requirement of better spark. If no, please lemme no...if Yes, then how much shud it be. for now, i have left it as stock


    waiting for the replies


    and thanks to jehanzeb

    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    @chinyoti
    well to be very honest, i only considered super 4s and platinums m not an expert on them, so i m sorry i cant help u out with the competitors

    @hondaFanatic
    sir i m sorry but i dont think i can disclose the price here. i got it from @jz. his cell no is 03234222772. i guess announcing the price here without his prior permission wud be a lil wrong on ma behalf hope u dont mind

    @experts
    anyone with the plug gaps suggestion ??

    i m not expecting something big from them. reason being that the fuel quality, of both CNG and petrol here in quetta is PATHETIC. the car barely moves on CNG here. its just that jz is a trusted guy and he imports the plugs directly from Japan. i mite have paid a lil more, but at least i m sure that i have got the genuine stuff

    @all
    went for a test ride today at both high and low speeds...and both high and low RPMs in different gears. i have felt marked difference in the ride. first of all, throttle response is much more predictive and stable now. secondly, RPM is more stable and smooth. third, car acceleration has increased and the engine seems to be kinda more "easy" when accelerating. abt the fuel average, i cant say for now. wud post the stats in few days inshallah

    @Zaeem
    i also ordered the Super 4s initially, but then due to some reasons i dropped the idea m glad they are working fine for u though

    in my eyes setting up a car for CNG is a dark art. not too sure about the actual plug gap for your application but as you mentioned it'll be less than it is for petrol. best advice i can give you is to keep it stock and slowly decreas it using a feeler guage untill you feel that your car is driving correctly on gas.

    i think spectra would be able to guide you better.
    1. A car is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it, 2. Resale wont save your life in an accident, 3. Genius has limits, stupidity has none, 4. Never argue with an idiot, they will bring you down to their level & beat you with experience, 5. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young! 6. انّا للہ و انّا الیہ راجعون
