    Performance question

    If a car has been overfuelling on a remap to the point of petrol getting in the oil if you have the remap sorted by another tuner would there be a chance figures would be effected as the cat would be full of petrol? and how long would it take to flush the ptrol out of the cat?

    you dont flush petrol out of a cat, you either try and let it burn off, or replace the cat

    petrol in the oil isnt good mate as it breaks down the oil etc would highly recommend flushing the oil out with cleaner and refilling,

    (there is a reason people use petrol to clean oil and carbon off bits of engine when your rebuilding)
