Pulstar® with PlasmaCore Pulse Plug uses an integrated capacitor that stores and compresses electrical energy to intensify the ignition spark in internal combustion engines (ICE). This process increases fuel economy and engine performance – a revolutionary feature unattainable by any conventional spark plug on the market. In fact, tests conducted at third-party certified labs, and internally at Enerpulse, confirm that Pulstar® increases fuel economy by an average of 5.5% while, at the same time, significantly improving tailpipe emissions and engine performance when compared to conventional spark plugs – even in “plug-and-play” installations.
Until now, every gallon of gas you bought was ignited by a simple spark plug- an outdated technology that has barely changed in 100 years. But now you can change to a new eco-friendly pulse plug that uses an advanced technology to make every drop of gas burn better and cleaner. Here’s how it works: Electrical energy from the engine’s ignition coil is stored in the built-in capacitor. At the exact moment needed, that energy is released in an amazingly powerful and quick (two nanosecond) high-energy pulse.
The result: The improved combustion efficiency burns fuel sooner and more effectively, which equals improved mpg, less CO2 based emissions, and better overall drivability. Even the green get greener! For example, in this EPA US06 fuel consumption lab test, even the icon of fuel economy and eco-friendliness- the Toyota Prius- saw notable improvements in mpg.
This new technology is based on plasma research supported by the world famous Sandia National Laboratories – and yes, that’s definitely rocket science.
Pulse plugs may look similar to spark plugs on the outside, but inside the technological advances of Pulstar are evident. Pulse plugs feature a unique capacitor-based circuit that captures energy normally wasted by spark plugs and generates a spark with 20,000 times greater energy than any spark plug.
