    Hi i was getting about 55 miles in summer about 50 miles in winter in uk untill my cat was robbed now no more miles on my prius 2006 as i cant afford to put an OM cat on it so it looks like its going to be scrapped unless an aftermarket one is legal in uk lol

    There is nothing to prevent an aftermarket catalytic converter in the UK. I'm sure @Data Daedalus will be able to assuage your concerns as the same thing happened to him. He had an aftermarket CC installed with good results and no problems with the MOT inspection.

    Aftermarket cat is ok in UK.
    MOT do not check emissions for hybrid cars in UK.

    167K just gassed up and getting 46 mpg, 40 deg in the AM and low 70s in the afternoon, approx 65 a day. What stinks is I can't get more than about 8 gallons of gas in the tank. 5 days then I have to gas up.
