I never made it to Thailand, but did live in the Phillipines 2 years.

Ran across this GREAT article on catch cans ...it must be good because he agrees with my method of where to install one and does a great job explaining why it needs to go there.

Disclaimer: I have no connection to this company in any way shape or form.

Looks like mine uses the impingement method using the offset and different heights of intake and exit to trap those pesky microdrops without using the steel mesh of some systems.

One thing on the Fit/Jazz and the second catch can idea. From all the people that have installed theirs INCORRECTLY onto the vent line we can extrapolate that we do not generate any oil coming back in that direction as the incorrect installed ones DO NOT COLLECT ANY OIL.

Anyway when any of the DOUBTERS (like manxman) that don't believe I am correct send them to this article from an "Expert" and they can see for themselves that I have been correct all along.

This is advice for Dwalbert 320. I saw your instal of your can on the freak net and sorry to say that is the INCORRECT spot to install. In that position you will catch exactly NO OIL.

Look closely and see the hose that is circled in red I'm pretty sure (I don't have a GE) check and see if it leads into the intake manifold (not the air filter) on the top end and into the PCV valve on the bottom that is the one you need to cut and instal the line to your catch can on.

It is the PCV system hose. Follow it to a spot where it is convent and cut the line or disconnect it where is leads into the intake MANIFOLD and connect that end to the inlet on your catch can then run a new line from the outlet to the intake MANIFOLD.

And ignore to doubters and so called "experts" on the freak net that say there is no need just send them here so they can see the amount of oil collected IF IT IS PUT IN THE PROPER SYSTEM.

Well on the just past two years of installation anniversary I have to announce to the naysayers (Dishonorable Dave you listening) it has performed FLAWLESSLY no problems what so ever.

And if you add up all the times I emptied it of oil collected I have removed over 2 inches of collected oil from my intake system.

Pretty good for a $10.00 investment I would say

Ha and "they" say it couldn't be done. Why would anybody spend $200.00 or more on one when you can make your own for 10 bucks???????

And note it is installed in the PROPER POSITION ask those guys with the $200.00 dollar ones installed in the breather circuit how much oil they have collected............... never mind I will tell you ZERO, NADA, ZIP, ZERO, ZILCH!!!


Just looked it up in my log and that much oil was collected in 5,000KM of driving since installation

Okay Claymore, give me a month, and I will put your Gizmo to the test. Question, if this does work, should the Fit theoretically "Smog" cleaner? The latest Smog test I took barely passed. Wait, I should rephrase that. I was one molecule of Hydro Carbon from failing!
Now if I can only figure out where to hook this up exactly. So it goes between the PCV valve, and the Intake Manifold? I guess I'll have to take a closer look at the service manual that Dave gave me.

Default So they finally catch up with me

See for yourself all those skeptics out there that said I was wrong and they did NOTHING. Like the wiener dog LOL.

All for your pleasure in living color.

Now you can buy this EXPENSIVE one or DIY your own for $10.00 Take your pick.

Glad they are finally catching up with my advice.
