This is my odd cylinders. From right to left. What does the greenish color mean? My even cylinders are like that too. Thanks in advance.

It's probably the cheesy chrome plating that E3 uses on their ground straps burning off.

I don't use any additives. And they have been in there a long time. Almost 2 years.

They're heavily oxidized. It's not too uncommon.
Next time though I'd switch out those E3s for copper plugs.

Those e3 did goods to me but I swapped then out with autolight platinums. I have 8mm wires and my msd ignition is in the mail.

Probably 15. I put them in about two years ago.
