The only type I would even consider using would be the type that has an envelope of neon gas surrounding the wire. The wire induces a current into the neon when the plug fires, this causes the neon to fluoresce.Translucent covers were used to get the different colors. Any that would use a spark jumping a gap (think inline spark plug tester) I wouldn't use on a bet. Too much current lost and excessive wear and tear on the ignition system in general, IMHO.

I don't recall seeing them around for YEARS, though. Back in the day they were a novelty, didn't seem to last very well at all. I'm sure the durability would be improved today- if you can find them, that is!

Good luck.
