Yep, Leaded fuels can clog up a cat very fast. I had to pound out a clogged HFC on an EvoX after only 300 miles on the odometer from leaded fuel.

For this car I don't have cats; so that's not an issue. The only other part that leaded fuel can harm is the O2 sensors; which is definitely a risk. I only run leaded gas 12-15 times a year for track events; and so far my O2 sensors are still functioning fine
