TO "CAT" DELETE, OR NOT???

I'VE GOT A 2005 250-POWERSTROKE, AND I'M DOING A GOOD BIT OF TOWING. I HAVE A STOCK SET UP, EXCEPT FOR MY AIRAID INTAKE. I'M WANDERING IF REMOVING MY CATALYTIC CONVERTER WOULD GIVE ME ANY MOR MPG'S. IF ANYONE KNOWS, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. THANKS , JASON

Global freezing is in full effect - we need to do anything we can to warm this place up!


Serious though, I do not believe in global warming, but am not for polluting unnecessarily.
