You shouldnt need to be re-checking the gap, if they are off, then something is wrong. Spark Plug Gap should only be done initially when installed, because trying to re-gap worn spark plugs will usually end up with arcing of the electrode.......thus shortening the life of the plug

The Plugs have paltinum tips and won't change the gap ever.
