Re: [DML] Why Owners Carburete Their DeLoreans

I am not going to wade into the "debate" here, but I will mention just for
clarification that I do indeed have catalytic converters on my car. They
were installed with Houston's "Performance Exhaust" (actually, at DMC
Florida) by a previous owner. As a result, they're less than 10 years old.
My car did run with a vacuum leak while using K-Jet, and also for a while
using the carburetor, but they were both small-enough vacuum leaks to not
affect my fuel economy significantly. My exhaust smells fine and the
catalytic converters have never overheated, so it can be assumed that they
are healthy. However, the only way to know for certain would be to get two
exhaust gas analyzers: one which attaches to the oxygen sensor, and another
which attaches to the tailpipe. I do not have these tools on hand, so I do
not have numbers to look at. In my opinion, since there are no data there
is no real argument to be made. Let's all just get on with life and enjoy
our cars.
