– using leaded petrol;
– using fuel or lubrication additives which are not approved.
Or operating faults such as:
– faulty ignition, running out of fuel or disconnected spark plugs resulting
in the engine misfiring or cutting out
– loss of power,
may cause the catalytic converter to
overheat, reducing its efficiency which
may irreparably damage it and cause
heat damage to the vehicle. If you notice any of the above operating
faults, have the necessary repairs car-
ried out as soon as possible by an ap-
