Newly deleted and wife is very angry! I can't even warm my truck up in the garage.. I pull outside and smell still comes inside the house. Even worse when sucked in the heater vents. Terrible. Wife is going to make me un delete it. Exhaust is a flo pro 4" with muffler turbo back. Wondering if or how much a converter would cut down the smell? Help.

It is used in aromatherapy. The scent.....is said to help alleviate depression, and has sedative properties.
This blend is used for a heart tonic and used to treat infectious diseases.....
A dab of THIS on 'er upper lip, Presto!

No Diesel odor conflict. :grinn

I may be ok. Need to run this tank out. I had a 1/2 tank of premium and accidentally added 1/2 tank of bio diesel. Ran it 1/2 down and added another 1/2 tank of premium with their pre done additives plus I added 1/2 bottle of Stanadyne. Wondering if that's why it smells so bad. Going to try to get a full full of #2 with no additives and see if it helps. Part of smell in Truck is residual antifreeze. Installer had a hose blow and antifreeze blew everywhere. That needs to air out as well.

A converter will help and will make it a little quieter-- be cheaper than a new bride.

I used to back in, but did start pulling straight in.. Problem is that the wind seems to blow right into the garage. It may get better with straight #2 and no additive or winter blend I'm hoping.

Pot smokers put fabric softener in the cardboard tube that comes with paper towels and exhale through it covering up the smell. You could just jam some Bounce up the tailpipe. Problem solved.

Once you tune/remove the DOC, & DPF the smell is very noticeable. Even if the winds are calm.

Put the DOC (aka as CAT) back on, & the noticeable smell will go away. Magnaflows makes DOC works as well.

The cat system and sensors are part of the delete. Are you saying to just put a cat on without the sensors and the chemical reaction through the cat will ease the smell?

I see the Magnaglow cat online. So sensors. Looks like I could clamp in place.. The chemical reaction with the metals inside should cut some smell down. Thanks.

Yes. Stock CAT or the Magnaglow CAT would help. Id say the stock CAT would help more with the smell.
