Which of the following will NOT occur from setting a spark plug gap wider?
A smaller weaker spark.
Bigger spark.
Better combustion.
Potential misfire at high speeds.
Detailed Explanation
A wider spark plug gap will result in a bigger spark. This is because the spark has to travel a longer distance between the electrodes. A bigger spark can lead to better combustion, which can result in increased engine performance and decreased fuel consumption. However, a wider gap also requires more voltage to jump, which can lead to misfires, especially at high speeds.
