Iridium

Does anyone use Iridium plugs. They are supposed to last for ages and give better performance which is supposed to justify the extra cost?

Years of use is relative as you would not have a exact total hour count unless you cary a record of the hours after boating, this would be better than nothing. Ideal would be to put a hour meter to controll better working hours, would be thinking max 300 hours plug life expectacy with 50 hours interval clean-up/regap for normal boating users and 100 hours clean/regap for constant users under daily/heavy basis use.

Happy Boating

the ones in the opti were/ are the iridium ones ( IZFR5G) so thats why cost do much . They are supposed to be changed at 300 hours , if thats one year or 4 so no diffeance there. I guess I paid more than I needed to as I needed them soon.
