SOUTHFIELD, Mich., March 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Consumers can save money while tuning up their lawn mowers, chainsaws, gas-powered trimmers and other outdoor equipment through Federal-Mogul Corporation's (Nasdaq: FDML) popular "Smart Choice™" offer on premium Champion® spark plugs and tune-up kits.

From March 1 through April 30, 2011, consumers can qualify for a $1.50 mail-in rebate on the Champion brand's innovative "One Tug" EZ Start™ spark plugs for everything from lawn mowers to rototillers and other small-engine applications, and a $5 rebate on all-in-one Champion lawn mower tune-up kits. Champion small-engine spark plugs and tune-up kits are available through leading national retailers across North America. Details on each promotional offer, as well as helpful tips for tuning up lawn-and-garden equipment, are available through Federal-Mogul's www.FMSmartChoice.com website.

Champion EZ Start spark plugs – known as "The One Tug Plug™" because they help start a tuned-up engine on the first pull – are engineered specifically for lawn mowers, chainsaws, trimmers, snow blowers and other demanding small-engine applications. Each EZ Start plug features an internal booster gap with a fine-wire electrode that maximizes the energy flow into a more concentrated spark. A projected core nose helps provide maximum resistance to fouling.

The award-winning Champion lawn mower tune-up kit includes everything needed for a quality tune-up – air filter, Champion spark plug, 4-cycle oil, end-of-season fuel stabilizer and oil funnel and drain pan – in a robust, clear plastic package. The top of the package serves as the oil funnel and the base as the drain pan for used oil. When the old oil is drained from the engine, the user simply closes the top for safe, environmentally friendly recycling.

Champion tune-up kits are available for a broad range of popular lawn mowers equipped with Briggs & Stratton or Honda engines.
