Exhaust Tailpipe

The exhaust tailpipe is the final component of your exhaust system that carries the exhaust fumes out of the rear of the vehicle where they are dispersed into the outside air. The exhaust gases are produced when the fuel and air mixture is burned by the engine cylinders.

From there, exhaust manifolds redirect the exhaust to the catalytic converter, where pollutants are filtered out. The filtered exhaust fumes enter the muffler where they are then finally passed through the exhaust tailpipe. Some vehicles may have dual tailpipes which sit side-by-side.
