[turbobike] Plugs

I have a turbo Blackbird and seem to be going through plugs.  

Currently, when I ride the beast on low boost, which is everyday use, I use
pump gas.  When I want balls to the walls, it's VP's C-16 in a 50/50 mix.
I generally run High Boost about once a month.  What I am noticing is that
the bike tends to pick up sputters during low boost that really aren't
there in high boost.  However, to fix these, I just replace the plugs.  I
have had to replace the plugs after a tankful of pump gas.  Seeing that
these are the friggin platinum plugs, $36 for the plugs and $6 for the gas
each time is not that economical.  Anyone have any ideas?
