Can condensation from exhaust be Minimized?
There seems to me condensation from exhaust via smoke like for a longer period of time at start up than should.
In a catalytic converter, the catalyst (in the form of platinum and palladium) is coated onto a ceramic honeycomb or ceramic beads that are housed in a muffler-like package attached to the exhaust pipe. The catalyst helps to convert carbon monoxide into carbon dioxide. It converts the hydrocarbons into carbon dioxide and " WATER ". It also converts the nitrogen oxides back into nitrogen and oxygen.
