    never heard of them mate, but to claim an extra 5mpg they must be good, even though it was from a prius....

    here's the gen - important bits in red as far as i am concerned - and there roughly 4 times the cost of a standard plug - so you work out if they will be an econonmical purchace



    Pulse plugs incorporate a pulse circuit, which stores incoming electrical energy from the ignition system and releases the stored energy in a powerful pulse of power. Instead of 50 watts of peak power typical of all spark plugs, pulse plugs deliver up to 1 million watts of peak power. So where does the pulse plug get its incredible power?

    When the ignition signal is sent to a traditional spark plug, it begins to ionize the spark gap. This means that the voltage builds in the gap until a spark can be formed. During this ionization phase, which lasts about 5 millionths of a second, the incoming voltage (which has nowhere to go) heats up ignition components including the spark plug. This is wasted energy. When the ignition voltage overcomes the resistance in the spark gap, the spark is created with an initial discharge of approximately 50 watts. Once created, the spark resides between the electrodes at very low power for over a period of 30 millionths of a second.

    What is different about a pulse plug is that instead of heating ignition parts during the ionization phase, this energy is stored in the integral circuit inside the pulse plug. When the ignition power overcomes the resistance in the spark gap, the pulse circuit discharges all of its accumulated power - 1 million watts - in 2 billionths of a second!
    Tests at an independent laboratory demonstrated how Pulstar™ pulse plugs burn fuel faster and more efficiently than spark plugs. In a high-speed video on the companies website, which was shot at 68,000 frames per second, you can actually see the ignition plume of Pulstar™ growing at more than twice the speed of the spark plug. Pulstar™ generates a much larger spark than spark plugs, which reduces overall burn time and burns the fuel more completely. This faster fuel burn increases cylinder pressure by as much as 10% allowing the engine to generate the same power with less fuel resulting in better fuel economy.

    CAUTION: Pulstar™ model recommendations are for stock, unmodified engines. If you have added an aftermarket turbocharger, supercharger, nitrous or any other product that increases displacement or compression to your engine you will require a colder heat range pulse plug in order to avoid possible damage to your engine.

    Sounds like a disclaimer to me! i.e. they know something won't work right and are trying to make sure you don't claim against them for damage to your motor.
