How does the Halo Spark Plug work?

The Halo features a patented “Halo Ring” ground electrode, with cutting-edge 360° Firing Technology that delivers superior burn characteristics for improved combustion and optimum use of available fuel energy.  Unlike standard spark plugs that generate a spark at basically the same location each time, the Halo generates rotating sparks that fire in a 360° pattern around the circular electrode.  This advanced firing system has several advantages including: quicker initiation of the combustion process, reduced fouling and misfires, and reduced electrode wear for a longer performance life.  In addition, the open ring design of the ground electrode plays a major role in helping to improve combustion efficiency.  Since the flame kernel is not blocked by the ground electrode as in other spark plugs, it can travel freely through the ring into the combustion chamber, igniting the air/fuel mixture up to 30% faster than conventional plugs.  This results in a more complete combustion and less wasted fuel coming out of the tailpipe.

What kind of results are you seeing?

Independent lab tests (including tests performed at Michigan State University) and trials with various government fleets, including city, police, and schools, as well as commercial fleets have shown that the Halo Spark Plug can increase fuel economy by up to 10%, lower harmful emissions by up to 20%, and enhance engine performance: more horsepower and torque, better throttle response and acceleration, and better cold starts.  Consumers are also reporting similar improvements in their vehicles.  For more information on trial results please check the “Trial and Test Results” section.

I don't see my vehicle in the online catalog.  How do I find the correct plug?

Our catalog has not yet been updated to include vehicles with Model Year 2006 to 2008.  Simply send us an email at sales@lsgbrisk.com with your vehicle's Year, Make, Model, and Engine size and we will notify you of the correct Halo Spark Plugs for your vehicle.  If possible, include the brand name and part number of the OEM plugs (eg. Autolite, part # APP5245).  You can find this information in your Owner's Vehicle Manual.  This will help us to cross reference your plugs faster.   

Will using Halo Plugs void my vehicle’s warranty?

No.  Installing the Halo Spark Plug or any other aftermarket plug in your vehicle will not void your warranty.  Under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, a manufacturer may not make its vehicle warranty conditional on the use of any brand of spark plug unless the manufacturer is willing to provide the item free of charge.

So, if the consumer is told that a non-OEM brand of spark plug will void the warranty, they should request that the OEM dealer supply the OEM brand spark plugs free of charge. If they are charged for the spark plugs, the manufacturer or dealer is in violation of Federal law and the consumer should contact the Federal Trade Commission and report it.

Damaged, altered or modified plugs in any manner, including by dropping, tampering, servicing, misuse, abuse, accident, or neglect are excepted.

What is the Warranty Policy?

LSG BRISK LLC promises to replace your LSG Halo spark plug should it contain or develop any defect in workmanship or materials for 50,000 miles or three years from the date of purchase, whichever comes first.  Please see the Warranty section for further details.

How do I gap it?

The Halo’s gap is preset at the factory and, unlike standard spark plugs, never needs to be adjusted.  The gap remains constant to ensure optimum combustion and maximum engine performance.   

How does Halo compare to iridium plugs?

Iridium is a step up from platinum, in that it is a tougher, better wearing metal. They really have increased longevity. The Halo’s ground electrode is made of 95% nickel alloy that is the same as the sidewire on other spark plugs (the iridium and platinum plugs included).

Since the Halo fires off of a different point each time, there is no need for an exotic, more expensive and less conductive metal (such as platinum) to improve the life of the plug. We do it by eliminating point firing, which is responsible for the gap degradation. These metals are necessary to reduce wear when you fire from one point all the time. Not a problem for the Halo Plug.   Our design ensures  a long performance life.

How is the Halo Plug doing in racecars?

Although the Halo is performing very well in racecars, the plug is not warranted for racing applications due to the extreme conditions.

Are your plugs safe to run with nitrous?

Our plugs ignite the gas quicker than standard plugs, and with nitrous, this will be even more pronounced. If you use them with nitrous you will want to retard your spark advance to ensure that you do not create excessive cylinder pressures. Our plugs are not warranted for these types of applications.

Why can’t I use the Halo on my Turbo or Supercharged auto?

The Halo plugs can be used in all North American vehicles except Turbo or Supercharged engines. The problem may occur in vehicles with these engines if they are run at 5,000 rev/min for a period of time. The current Halo Plug may not be able to dissipate the extreme amount of heat generated. That is highly unlikely in the U.S., otherwise the vehicle owner is breaking the law by driving at over 100 miles per hour for a period of time.

Are Halo Spark Plugs available for motorcycles, snowmobiles, ATVs and marine engines? 

 

Yes.  We do carry Halo Spark Plugs for these applications, however, at this time we only manufacture 14 mm plugs.  Some of these vehicles use 10 mm to 12 mm plugs.  If your vehicle uses 14 mm plugs (check your owners manual if you’re not sure) and you would like to order, please contact us for more information.  We will be glad to assist you.        

How do I measure my fuel economy?

One of the most important things to remember when measuring your fuel economy is to completely fill your tank each time you go to the gas station.  Partial fill-ups will produce inaccurate results.  We recommend that you fill your gas tank until the first click of the pump and stop.  Then continue filling up until you get three more clicks and stop.  This will ensure that the amount of fuel is fairly constant on each fill-up.

When finished, write down the date and how many miles you have on your odometer.  There is no need to record how many gallons you purchased on your first fill-up.  Drive your vehicle until you have about a quarter tank left and do your second fill-up.  Follow the same procedure as the first time and record the date and odometer reading, but this time record the number of gallons required to fill the tank.  Now you are ready to calculate your fuel economy.

Simply take the second odometer reading, subtract the first odometer reading and divide the result by the number of gallons.  For example:

1st reading = 10,000 miles

2nd reading = 10,336 miles

Number of gallons = 16

Fuel economy = (10,336 – 10,000) /16 = 21.0 mpg

Continue this procedure for a few weeks to determine your average MPG.
