It's called a pulse plug - and here's why its technology should be in your engine.
The spark plug has been around for almost a hundred years yet there has been very little that has changed in its design. It's already outdated and you'll need to get a replacement that matches 21st century technology. The pulse plug is an eco-friendly device that is made with advanced tech and is designed to burn your fuel cleaner and better than ordinary spark plugs. Learn More
Compared to standard spark plugs, Pulstar® pulse plugs deliver up to 10% better fuel economy and up to 12% more horsepower and torque. Using a "fine-wire electrode", pulse plugs offers efficient fuel combustion resulting in cleaner exhaust, reduced CO2 emissions, better cold starts, and faster throttle response.
Coupled with Pulstar's 100,000 mile warranty, pulse plugs are the only plugs that you'll need for your vehicle.
Pulstar ® 1,000,000 watts vs. 50 watts for all other plugs
Pulstar ® pulse plugs
At first glance, pulse plugs may look like ordinary spark plugs, but the technology behind it is far more advanced. Pulse plugs have a unique capacitor-based circuit that allows it to capture energy that is normally wasted by standard spark plugs in order to generate a spark with 20,000 times greater energy
Here's how it works: You don't need to modify anything in your car's engine as pulse plugs look and fit just like standard spark plugs. Using a pulse circuit, it stores electrical energy from the ignition system in its built-in capacitor that releases it at the exact moment for a shorter but more powerful burst of energy.
Compared to the 50 watts of peak power that an ordinary spark plug delivers, pulse plugs can generate up to 1,000,000 watts of peak power. With that much energy, pulse plugs can burn fuel much more efficiently than ordinary spark plugs. A larger spark at twice the speed will result in better throttle response, additional horsepower, as well as increase fuel mileage.
Instead of the 50 watts of peak power delivered by a typical spark plug, pulse plugs deliver up to 1,000,000 watts of peak power. This allows Pulstar ® pulse plugs to burn fuel more efficiently than traditional spark plugs. Pulstar ® plugs generate a much larger spark than conventional spark plugs and at twice the speed. Pulstar ® reports this faster ignition generates more power that you will feel in enhanced throttle response, more horsepower to the wheels and increased gas mileage.
The result : A stronger and faster spark burns fuels faster resulting in combustion efficiency, more miles per gallon, less CO2 emissions, and better overall vehicle performance. Even hybrid vehicles can benefit from using pulse plugs! In an EPA US06 fuel consumption lab test, a Toyota Prius saw notable improvements in fuel consumption. Even green cars get greener thanks to Pulstar ® pulse plugs.Learn More
Pulstar ® pulse plugs definitely counts as "rocket science" when it comes to its features as the technology behind it is based on plasma research supported by the world famous Sandia National Laboratories.
"I noticed significant improvement in fuel economy and in horsepower." - D. Thompson, 1998 Subaru Impreza "
Flame Kernel Growth
When viewed using high-speed video recordings (at about 68,000 frames per second) you can actually see the flame kernel or ignition plume from the pulse plug grow bigger and faster compared to other spark plugs. With that, fuel is burned more efficiently for added power and improved mileage.

Increase Towing Capacity - Pulstar ® generates more low-end torque for towing applications.
Because of the way Pulstar ® pulse plugs ignite fuel, they actually generate more cylinder pressure, which results in more low-end torque that's perfect for towing applications. Pistons are pushed down with more force with increased cylinder pressure, which generates more torque in the crankshaft, more power, and greater low - end torque.
To put it simply, Pulstar ® pulse plugs provides more power to your vehicle's wheels!

Pulstar Plugs are electrical components that resemble your vehicle's spark plug not only in appearance but also in function. The similarity in appearance allows them to fit in perfectly into the slots allotted in your car's engine and the similarity in function allows them to generate a spark of power that's used to ignite the air-fuel mix found in your combustion chamber. But what sets these Pulse Star Plugs apart from your regular spark plug is their ability to unleash more power and enhance the efficiency of your vehicle's engine. While one spark plug can generate 50 watts, one Pulstar Plug is able to generate a spark ten times more powerful. It is able to do this with the help of a pulse circuit, which stores the electrical energy from the ignition system prior to it being released for combustion. Also, while spark plugs tend to waste energy by heating up the ignition components first before starting the ignition process, Pulse Plugs utilizes and focuses all the gathered energy into starting the ignition process. They're able to capture wasted energy, allowing them to be re-used again.
