I have one question related to cleaning a converter. There was a News story a while back talking about weird guys who have been vacuum sweeping the sides of highways. Because they claim that Cats discharge the precious metals which collect in the road side gravel. And thus they claim that there's money to be made from recycling the metals separated from the road side gravel. So correct me where I'm wrong. But it seems that once the metals are gone that the converter would become much less efficient, and thus I'm not sure its worth cleaning one when its life span has been notably reduced from use. Am I wrong about this?

(You can search about collecting the road side platinum... I'm not linking to it.)
