The world famous glass topped spark plug thatgives you a window into the combustion chamber so you can see theflame.
Why is this important? The flame's colour tellsyou the richness of the air/fuel ratio. A yellow flame means a richmixture and a blueish white flame a weaker mixture. Usually a bunsenblue flame is spot on.
The Colortune is so simple that anyone can useit. Itworks on the principle that certain fuel mixtures burn with a certaincolor.
