Hello everyone,

My name is Mitch and I’d like to re-introduce Pulstar Spark Plugs to your forum. I understand that we’re not a new face around here, but due to a recent company revision I’ll be taking over as the new forum representative on your message boards. As a current site sponsor, I would like to address a few things concerning our current overall status on your forum.

First and foremost, I am writing to express my sincerest apologies if there have been any sort of conflict relationships with Pulstar Spark Plugs in the past. Our reputation is very important to us, and I’m here to ensure that your entire community has a positive experience with our company from this moment forward. Coincidentally, we just launched our new how it works video. It features actual footage of Pulstar’s plasma-forming pulse and improved fuel burn captured by AVL, a certified testing laboratory frequently used by most major automotive manufacturers.


We developed this video in order to clearly explain and highlight complex subjects such as plasma physics, energy compression, and nano-plasma combustion chemistry to the general public. Our technical advisory committee helped us with this video. As you can already imagine, it contains some pretty complex science that needs to be understandable if you don’t happen to be a plasma physicist. Dr Claude Phipps (who actually is a plasma physicist and received his degrees from MIT and Stanford) alongside with Dr Tim Jacobs (the undergraduate program director and assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University) lent us their expertise for this video. You can learn more about it here. Hopefully this will serve to answer any questions or concerns you might have.

Before you continue any further, listen up. I’ve been where you guys are. I know that there is nothing more annoying than a vendor that doesn’t interact with the community at all. Or even a vendor that has nothing relevant to contribute to the site and instead ends up cluttering it. Long story short, I’m here to change all of that.

Your support and continued partnership means a lot to us. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to post below or PM me directly. I’ll do my best to reply back to you ASAP! Once again, thank you :)

Sincerely,
- [email protected]

No more spam bot messages... Teach us something we don't already know and give us a reason to try your product. You guys where annoying the hell out of us with your stupid posts. Glad to see someone responding.

Hey Mitch, welcome to the forum, thanks for a nice post, hope you will interactively participate any questions or suggestions, and hopefully join with jokes and bullshit .....

The other dude pissed us off so badly that i even wrote to pulstar website for an official complaint, let's forget about all of that and have some fun ??

Looks like your official complaint worked @BP6666VR
That and the rest of us ignoring the stupid threads.
The guys just here to try and promote snake oil spark plugs,
Everyones gotta do something hey.
Im off for a ride!

$34.99 for two plugs. NKG plugs $12.00
carbibles says

If you've never changed your spark plugs, putting almost any brand of new plug in your engine will yield some change to your vehicle's characteristics - normally a slightly increased gas mileage and slightly increased horsepower. With the Pulstar plugs, the average gas-mileage went down slightly over the course of the test. This bears out similar reports from other group tests of these spark plugs published elsewhere on the web.
Horsepower did go up but only slightly using the testing method here. As I said above, it's not the absolute value that is important - it's the difference between the before and after figures. In this case half a horsepower equates to about 0.4% difference. Any sort of dyno testing whether it be rolling road or dynamic in-car testing like this will typically have an error tolerance of about 5% so the difference in horsepower results in this case is negligible.
I rated the plugs as 2 stars because they're good quality plugs and make fine replacements for anything you might have in your engine right now. But they simply do not seem to live up to the claims made in the advertising

Thanks for the warm welcome. I know how annoying that stuff gets, and that's why I'm taking over. I promise that won't happen again, so here's to a fresh start :)


Your skepticism is understandable and articles like the one you found don’t help at all. While I’m sure that the author was well-intentioned there are several flaws in his test methodology.

Let’s look at them in order.

Visual assessment: As the author indicated there wasn’t much left of the dissected plug. We use the insulator as the dielectric for the capacitor. If you check out the graphic here, you’ll see that they destroyed the part of the plug that’s most different from a conventional plug. We use the insulator as the dielectric for the capacitor.

Fuel Economy: There are many variables that affect fuel consumption. Among them are temperature, humidity, fuel, speed, elevation changes and driving style. The two most significant are speed and driving style. The nearly 12% difference between the low and high values of the baseline data show how unrepeatable and therefore unreliable the method used in that test was.

Power: The writer didn’t way what year Honda Element was used in this test but starting in ’07 Honda started using a “drive by wire” throttle control system where the gas pedal isn’t connected to the throttle. Instead the computer controls the throttle opening. These systems use a torque command strategy, based on a variety of inputs, to determine how much torque to allow the engine to produce at a given time. The only ways to increase total power output on a vehicle using a torque command strategy is through a custom calibration (tune) or to fool the system by modifying one of the input signals.

Take a look at this peer-reviewed paper published by Nissan that explores the fundamentals of the technology found in Pulstar Spark Plugs. They didn’t test Pulstar specifically but used technology similar to Pulstar’s to “initiate combustion rapidly, approaching an ideal constant volume cycle; has potential for improving lean combustion operation; is energy efficient; and is potentially useful for gasoline engine emissions reduction.”

For more scientific data check out the peer-reviewed papers we have published regarding our technology. My favorite is this paper, which was co-authored by Matthias Neubauer of AVL who was really impressed with our product after he tested them.
