The flue of my ecotec plus is situated 2.9 meters above

Customer Question

The flue of my ecotec plus is situated 2.9 meters above ground floor. My car is parked underneath the flue. will the acidic exhaust fumes damage the paintwork of my car? If it is damaging, will raising the flue help and if so how high above ground level do I need to raise it?

This high above the vehicle should not be an issue with anything damaging car.Keep in mind these gases are warm when they leave the termination so should continue to rise, not fall directly onto anything below.
