I figured.. That is a bit low.

Maybe this has been discussed in another topic, but I wonder if it'* the cat that'* killing your mileage, or if it'* a poor-running engine that'* killing your cat?

Cats usually fail 2 ways

1. Get clogged, something is wrong with your motor.

2. Get broken, they can crack with age, or if you hit the cat with a big dip or curb or something.

Running rich will kill a cat in short order. It looks like you've rectified that problem.
