1. The cat is in the header and not the muffler.
2. Poor quality gas does nothing to a cat, leaded gas does which you won't find in the Americas or most other places in the world these days.
3. If the cat gets damaged it won't leave you stranded, the only thing that happens is that your emissions get worse, but not any worse than without it.

Learn something new every day!
