    Mine gets emptied no matter what every oil change which is every 3000 miles or 3 months. So far I have not had more then an ounce at the most. I do take the entire bottom off of mine though instead of draining the can from its bolt to make sure i get a good majority out.

    Just depends on the type of catch can you use. I usually use a glass type you put on a air compressor line so you can see when it starts to fill up. Unscrew pour out excess than spray out with brake clean.

    I have also seen a difference on type of oil used. Some oils tend to mist easier in the under the valley pan so you have more of a oil mist that get's sucked up.

    What can are you using. Does it have like a Scotch Brite pad in it to catch oil or what?
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    I empty mine every oil change ( 500 miles or 10 hours engine run time)....get a tablespoon full each time. The reason you should do this is to keep the can operating at maximum efficiency...the fuller it gets the less efficient.....

    hey sarge, is there any special reason you change your oil every 500 miles?
