    Greetings everyone! Just wanted to ask if anyone has installed a catalytic converter in their diesel engine? Aside from preventing pollution, what else does it do? Does it help in minimizing diesel consumption?

    a catalytic converter only does one thing, reduce polluting exhaust gasses from your exhaust pipe.

    the catalytic converter breaks down the chemicals of your exhaust fumes into less toxic chemicals.

    the isuzu trooper has factory installed catalytic converter.

    Catalytic converters help you lessen pollution. I remember when our driver pumped water sa exhaust pipe ng trooper.. (akala niya jeepney!) kaya ayun, nasira ang catalytic converter. Medyo malaki din ang nagastos...

    catalytic converters are not for diesel engines only. most new cars/sedans now have one installed. cars with catalytic converters must only use unleaded gas or else the lead will damage the cat converter.

    Catalytic converters are standard equipment in other markets. Medyo nahuhuli lang tayo, but more and more vehicles are having it as standard equipment.
