I will be changing the spark plugs on my Moms 2000 CRV and would like to know if the "NGK ZFR6F-11" need to be gapped or are they Pre gapped?

They should be pre-gapped but ALWAYS double check. The box could have been dropped.

They ought to be pre-gapped, but double-check them anyway.

1.1mm

I checked main before installation all the time and gap was correct for all 8 spark plugs - I did it two times already.
That check would cost you $1 (tool) and about 1 sec per spark plug, but you'll be sure what you put in

It's encoded in the part number, too. The -11 at the end means 1.1mm

Also it's printed on the emissions sticker under the hood. The spark plug type and gap is printed on there.
