Don’t Get Burned

Did you know? Your exhaust system can start fires.

When you are on your summer outings, donĀ“t forget that your car’s exhaust system is equipped with a catalytic converter that has internal temperatures exceeding 2,000 degrees F. Although it’s well insulated and shielded, it’s still extremely hot externally.

If your exhaust system comes in contact with any combustible material, it will almost certainly catch on fire. Take care not to park anywhere that weeds and tall grass will touch your exhaust system.
