Default Plugs are light green what does it mean?

Hey guys,

I've heard of plugs being white if too lean and a tan color is normally ideal but mine are something I've never seen. They are a light green color, its pretty strange I dont get it.

Anyways no sedements on the plug or signs of detonation but still I'm not sure what this light green color means.

In case it means anything the Plugs are NGK TR6's its a V-power plug.

if you were running really rich I think they would be really black,

because i'm running really rich and my plugs get coated in black carbon deposites.

there are a few sites showing pics of what different type of bad plugs look like. try a google search.

The plugs are one step colder than stock

I've seen the links on plugs and thats why I asked because I didndt see any with green listed. There was no build up or anything only on the bottom rim of the plug which is expected.

The plug was very clean looking
