# Install two coils increases gas mileage.

The sparks in my car isn't as strong as I want it to be. I have an
ignition coil and an ignition module that I will hook up to the car.
The coils will install in parallel.

The grounding of the other coil will trigger the second ignition
module. This will give it two coils. I thought maybe two coils
are stronger than one and should increase gas mileage. Will this work?

Is it at factory correct specs now?

Unless the ignition system is not powerful enough to ignite the fuel
properly and is misfiring (in which case there's probably something broken),
this is not going to help anything.

Hi,
If you parallel the coil, the output will halfen.
Your idea is flawed. don't do it. It may cause a irreversible
damage to ign. circuit.

If you light the fuse on a stick of dynamite with a blowtorch instead
of a match, will you get a bigger explosion?

Unless your engine is misfiring now, no amount of extra strong spark

Tony

That is not correct. If both coils are identical the output will be same
voltage with twice the available current. This is assuming that the primary
driving circuitry can handle the job which I doubt. The idea of paralleling
the coils is not a good one. Tibur should explain how did he determine that
the coil "isn't as strong as I want it to be"

If your coil is defective, replace it. Firing the fuel charge a second
time won't make one whit of difference.

How have you determined that the spark is not enough to do the job?

than you are so I would consult with them before you go off on a

Mebbe that welder jump start trick is the reason the coil is weak now.
Or, could be that after seeing the sparks from the extra coil.

That's not necessarily true. If you have ever been in a small plane and
switched from one mag to another to both you will notice an instant RPM
change.

That's true... keep in mind though that planes have two spark plugs per
cylinder, each with it's own separate ignition system. I don't think Tibur
was planning to pull his heads and have them fitted for two plugs per
cylinder. Using two coils to fire one plug is not likely to help much.

Learn form your mistake = experience.
Learn from others mistakes = wisdom.

`Being bored is harmful in several ways, explained Caruba, who
founded his institute 17 years ago to educate the public on the
dangers of boredom.

It's a major cause of depression - which can lead to suicide.

Boredom, which hits people of all ages, "shuts the mind down,
limiting your ability to recognize positive ways of coping," noted
Caruba.

Caruba warns that depression also can weaken the body's immune
system, making people susceptible to serious illness.

Fortunately, there are simple steps you can take to combat

First, reach out to other people to develop and strengthen
relationships. Connect with others by smiling and hugging. Maintain
goals - always have things you want to learn or do and projects to
work on.

And remember, no matter how busy you are, regularly make time
for friends and family. Isolation leads to boredom. Stay in touch
with others.'

Here, take a look at the contraption circuits:

http://tinyurl.com/2r8lu -move mouse over pic-

The coil isn't as strong as I want it to be because the sparks are very
faint compared to other cars. It looks blue-orange and you could see
right thru them. It's amazing that it burns fuel and not missing, actually it
was missing couple days earlier until I replace with new plugs.

Normally it shouldn't miss because I only had the plugs (the ones taken
out) 7-8-thousand miles. The new coil contraption was meant as a
diagnostic jig... or perhaps, increase gas mileage.

That would work since you included the ignition module, assuming that the
pickup can drive two ignition modules. For a stock car I see no point.

Blue orange? That is a hot spark. How long is it? It could be that the
ignition wire insulation or the distributor is breaking down. Change those
first.

Here is a hot spark that I made once.

good point, but if second coil was delayed a few milliseconds it might be
interesting.
