Are Spark Plugs made of Gold?
« on: April 01, 2022, 03:54:02 PM »
I have a 115HP 04 Merc Optimax 3 cylinder so thankfully while my motor is a DOG I only have 3 plugs just spent $18 each...   :puking: One SKU up and they were $8 one SKU down and they are $7...

O well...  :facepalm: I really do want to repower my boat with a 150HP but just doesn't seem worth it... I'll just continue to push water for 1/2 the lake...

My plugs just went up in price too. Up to $4.30ea  ;D
I make baits, so when I fish, I am product testing! And when I am not using baits I make, I am researching.

Spark plugs have always been overpriced, in my opinion.

And with everything else going up in price, it would only make sense that spark plugs go up too  ::)
