High quality spark plugs improve emissions in winter months. Fact!

With the winter months looming upon us, reliability is vital for drivers. But fuel efficiency and economy are increasingly important – and often overlooked – characteristics drivers now demand, meaning it is vital to have the most reliable and efficient ignition parts fitted.

These winter months result in an increase in cold starts which require effective spark plug performance. One of the leading causes of hard starting is degraded Spark Plugs which can have a highly negative impact on fuel consumption and emissions.
