Any one used the color sparkplug to adjust the mixture?

Asked by May 02, 2012 at 09:15 AM about the 1979 Triumph Spitfire

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I need to make some mixture adjustments ( I think it is rich) and was looking at the colortune sparkplug. It sounds easy and not to expensiive. However, the exhaust/oxygen meter is probably the best but it is expensive.
