    Default Spark plugs for LPG

    Hi all
    I have a 1.8 duel fuel Vectra 2003 model, and was wondering if anyone here runs lpg and if so, what plugs do you use? There seems to be a bit of a difference of opinion on the web, some say, use the manufacturers standard plugs, others say use a cooler running plug.

    Cheers

    Gavin

    Hi Gavin,
    I run 2005 dual fuel. I haven't changed the plugs yet so haven't looked at what's fitted. Aren't they supposed to last some silly mileage - 40K or similar?

    Are you having problems or just checking before a service??

    Cheers
    Steve

    Hi Steve
    It didnt have much of a service history when I bought it, so Im doing a service on it, however it does have a problem as well. It appears to have a misfire when trying to accelerate under load. I'll probably detail this in another post.

    I changed the plugs putting in NGK quad electrode things, which are suitable for the standard 1.8 engine. However the problem is still apparent.
