Max SE delta between 2 puzzles with 1 given difference

During the Pattern Gaming I found some puzzles with only 1 different given, but a huge SE rating difference.
Code: Select all
`PG430..1..2....2..3..4.5..6....7.4.7....6..8...5..1....4.7.4....9..8.6..2..3....3..7.. ED=8.8/1.2/1.2..1..2....2..3..4.5..6....7.4.7....6..8...5..1....4.7.4....9..8.6..7..3....3..7.. ED=1.5/1.2/1.2PG4351.23......34.5..6.57...4...7.......1.8.....3...5...9.......9.82.2..3.75....2..4.3 ED=9.1/1.2/1.2   1.23......34.5..6.57...4...7.......1.8.....3...5...9.......1.82.2..3.75....2..4.3 ED=1.2/1.2/1.2`
I wonder if a greater gap exists (not necessarily minimal or symmetrical).

Definition of the gab in integers: ED=9.1/1.2/1.2 - ED=1.2/1.2/1.2 = 91012012 - 12012012 = 79000000

Gap = 91000000

Great! PG322 is already 3 years in the past.

I scanned all PG puzzles with ER>=10.0. This was the only one which resulted in a wider gap than the one you'd already found.

I'm checking against the database; it's working on 11.4s now, nothing yet.

`98.7..6..7......85..6......64..9.7....36..........7.2.49....8....89....1...84..6.  ED=11.4/1.2/1.2 PAQ98.7..6..7......85..6......64..9.7....36..........7.2.49....8....79....1...84..6.  ED=1.5/1.2/1.2`

Could be one with a higher EP, or with a 1.2 ER for the easy version, but I think I'll stop looking now.
