    I decided to pull my plugs and check the gap.
    I bought a wire Wheel gap checker and it has a .044 wire.
    I'm gonna set all the gaps to this.
    I get between 23 to 25 MPG right now depending.
    I'm just one of those Hacks who is involved in his car's performance.

    My thinking is more along the lines of when a spark will jump the gap. Seems a smaller gap is going to be jumped sooner than a larger one, thus the timing will be different. And yes, I know it may only be milliseconds different, but at 5-6k rpm, things are moving pretty fast in short amounts of time.
