    its an open question.. Given its source is a low cost country, like china, india or something, and its uber cheap, I ask the question on whats likely to actually be inside the corrogated cat like looking component.
    Its rare metals which are used in cats, which are £, so I am very sceptical (as usual) of something which is so cheap, and possibly too good to be true.

    does it actually catalyse? 100 cells cats are marginal pass on mot's anyhow.. (good ones) as dwell time is so short.

    Its an unknown, which I presume is why the op is asking the question
