If the light stays on for the cat efficiency code you wont know if any other codes are set unless u scan it every now and then. U need to get a cel fix either mechanical or electrical or get a cobb accessport to get rid of the code.As for the drinking more gas u might just be having a little heavier foot since the mods my mpg have sucked since i started modding.

Actually, the light will come back on for anything, including P0420.
