Normal Collection by Catch Can?
 
My catch can was half full. It was installed on 1/23/10. First emptying was on 2/15, after a 1000 miles since install

Second emptying was today (3/7/10), maybe 500 miles later.

Thanks Ben!

I wanted to ask because I know some people that after 2k miles they have barely anything in the catch can.

Well at least it is doing its job at keeping that manifold clean!

Looks like my normal "catch" - but I don't really keep track, usually just spin it off every now & then and take a peek, when it gets to about half I'll dump it.

Whats your driving style Joe? I'll keep track of mine and see exactly how I compare.

There's a bunch of reasons why yours may use a little more;

Type/brand of oil
Conditions vehicle used in/under
Usual factory variations within engine assemble specifications
.... and a bunch more besides.
