Abstract: The present work examines the spark plug gap variation in order to determine the influence of spark plug gap, in gasoline engine performance and gas emissions, using as fuel: Gasoline, LPG and CNG. For this aim was used four-stroke gasoline engine, exhaust gas analyzers and special software for the gas emissions record, when the engine functioned under load condition.
For every fuel (gasoline, LPG and CNG) were used different spark plug gaps. Τhe results give answer, in which spark plug gaps the engine has better operation for every fuel used.
