Some plugs have the torque settings on the box if you're putting new ones in, I've always erred on the side of caution, as damaged threads are a nightmare!

What don't you understand about the torque settings specified in eLearn? If it's because it gives two figures, these are upper & lower limits - aim for midway & you'll be fine.

I personally wouldnt wory too much about the torque settings tbh. Srew all the plugs in finger tight using a socket and extension then give them a nip up say 1/4 of a turn and thats all you need to do. You will know when the are tight enough by the feel.
