Just wondering if any of you have heard of using this to help pass emissions test. I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to replace my failed cat in time. Ty

Usually heet is used to evap all the water and otther empuritys fron gas tanks. I usually use the stuff at the end of the mowing season put into mower ect to keep water from building up. That way at the bigining of spring mower ect is easy start. I'm just affrad of causing damage to my engine. I guess it would be a octane booster. Ty

Heet is meant to remove moisture from gas. I used to use in when I lived in CT. It will do nothing to help your emissions, especially if your cat is bad. You can try the following:

1) new spark plugs & wires (if your car has them)
2) fuel system cleaner-to clean injectors, etc
3) induction cleaner, such as Seafaom-to clean throttlebody, intake, intake ports, combustion chanber, etc
4) change oil & filter

These should be things you do regularly anyways, but they might, maybe clean things enough to pass the test. Depending on how strict the test is its possible that only changing your cat will get you to pass.

but just fyi, be careful with seafoam. The older your car is the more damage it can do to seals and gaskets etc...

In Oregon if you have CEL you auto fail. Get the cat fixed before you re-test.
