What is Firing Order of 4 and 6 Cylinder Engine?

the purpose of all the firing order used in different engine is same that is smooth engine operation,  with less vibration and high power output.

The firing order of 2, 3, 4 and 6 cylinder in tabular form are given below:

 S.no Number of cylinder Firing Order 1. 2 1-2 2. 3 1-2-3, 1-3-2 3. 4 1-3-4-2 1-2-4-3 1-3-2-4 1-4-3-2 4. 6 1-5-3-6-2-4 1-4-3-6-2-5 1-6-5-4-3-2 1-2-3-4-5-6 1-4-2-5-3-6 1-4-5-2-3-6 1-6-3-2-5-4 1-6-2-4-3-5 1-6-2-5-3-4 1-4-2-6-3-5

I’m sorry,.. but i never saw a 6 cylinder engine with firing order 1-2-3-4-5-6,.. that would give to much strain on the crankshaft, the firing order was the solution for irregular running engines ,.. most of the engines have 1-5-3-6-2-4 or 1-4-2-6-3-5,..
