Spark Plugs and fuel economy/power

Does any one have any experince with spark plugs and performance like the E3 Diamondfire spark plugs. I see the adds on TV and I wonder if it is just a gimmick or legit.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Its a gimmick. Electricity flows thru the path of least resistance. It doesnt matter if there are 90,000 points on a plug, its still only going to make 1 spark. For the best performance, use the OEM Denso plugs.

I put them in my X to try(45000km) on the original plugs. I pulled 3 Denso and 3 NGK out. I averaged 22.5 on hwy(us gal) at 70 mph. Will see they work any better.
