Almost every scientific group and government around the world has concluded that global warming is real and a growing threat that cannot be ignored. In fact, according to a recent ABC NEWS poll, 85% of Americans believe global warming "probably is occurring." The United Nations has called for speedy and decisive international actions to combat this
phenomenon. Across our nation, concerned individuals are asking, "What can I do? What personal actions can I take?" There are many right answers such as replacing incandescent light bulbs with fluorescents or buying a hybrid car that wrings more mileage out of a tank of gasoline. Light bulbs are cheap. Hybrid cars are not.
Interestingly, most environmentally conscious drivers are not aware that the worst polluter in their garage is NOT THE CAR. It's their lawn and garden equipment. Ever notice the huge cloud of blue smoke that comes out of your lawnmower's exhaust every time you start it up? Lawnmowers, leaf blowers, sidewalk edgers and hedge trimmers emit millions of tons of hydrocarbons into the atmosphere that contributes to global warming. And, as the equipment operator, you are also breathing those harmful fumes.
The California Air Resources Board estimates that gas lawnmowers emit as much air pollution in one hour as driving a car for 13 hours. So, by the simple and inexpensive act of switching to our environmentally friendly spark plugs, you can lower your small engine emissions. In extensive testing, it was proven that E3 spark plugs reduce fuel consumption in small engines up to 13%. If you own a walk-behind mower, that will recover your E3 Spark Plug purchase price in about 2 seasons of mowing, and in only one season if you cut using a riding mower.
