A question re plug chart. Is it still relating to pre unleaded days... All plugs I've seen in recent years are black on the base like Stubsy's.

Not sure what fuel that chart was for - I had a bit more of a search and from reading the explination HERE it seems that maybe its a bit rich at idle.

Very interesting reading. Wonder if air cooled m/cycle engines read the same. I'm going to check my plugs shortly with this article in mind. What is WOT... and I assume "too much timing" means timing is too advanced.

Any other plug readers with modern fuel experience have info to offer?
