    Article "Swapping spark plugs for nanopulses"

    Interesting read, would be pretty cool to see real use results, as it sounds like it is planned to be a full swap out style kit (doubtful it will ever happen). 20% more efficient means roughly 3mpg better for me (18mpg avg in my tundra), probably only see 2mpgs at best, probably less. Still...
