Fuel cat.

I am thinking about fitting an inline fuel cat to save me the bother of pouring in an additive in the tank every time i fill up. Has any body fitted one or is currantly using one, are they good and do what they are ment to do, or should i stick with my liquid additive.Thank you all for your help.

overheating.

The local motorfactors tried to sell me the wrong thermostat ,they quote from there catalogues a QTH135 (89oC) ,when the haynes manual say you need a cooler thermostat About 80-83oC.Which is a QTH165(part no.).
Fitted that one and everything is sorted.
