    The bottle has nothing but oil in it... there's no mix. Too much in my opinion.

    Your catch can should be catching oil MIXED with gas. The can is designed to trap the vapors in the medium (aka steel wool) and to condense it into a liquid. If you are catching only oil then you either have the can installed incorrectly or there is an underlying issue with your engine.

    Either that guy poured old oil in a water bottle or there is a more serious issue.

    In the summer time I get nothing but oil out of the pass side can, although it does smell gassy. Driver side gets more cocktail mix.
    In the winter time there's much more moisture in there, because of condensation caused by the temp differential of the hot gases and the cold aluminum cans... hence why they'll freeze in the winter.

I ended up removing it because it was too much to pull over every few hundred miles on my trips over the mountains to empty, top-off oil, and erase the CEL, yes that kicked on frequently also. And yes, everything was installed correctly. I drilled to weep hole months before the can which does drain, evidenced on driveway, so the can only collected oil. Anyways...

    Mines the exact same way but on the 3.5, it smokes more than a tuned 6.0/6.4 power stroke if you let it idle in traffic or in the driveway for 10/15 minutes. I have noticed if you run higher boost building tunes they fill up faster or in fewer miles if you actually let it build high boost levels like the MPT “PRX high boost tune” which maxes out with 19/18 but it holds 18psi.

On a practical level, do I / will I need it. The hype seems mostly from the companies that sell the can and I think a lot of guys buy the hype that they need it.

    If the amount collected is over a 500 mile+ period, it seems the amount of that mixture is sprayed into the cylinders in a minute amount. Yeah, if I keep the truck more than 10 years, the valves will get coked. But if I trade it in in 3 or 4 years from now, is it worth it?

I change the oil (Amsoil Signature Series) every 5K or so and take it on road trips every couple of months, so I think she'll last me a good while. I figure if I ever need a walnut blasting done, I'll look at buying a catch can after that's done. Also, I'm the sort of person who drives a vehicle until everyone's embarrassed to be seen in it, drive it a few more years after that, and then replace it, but only if it dies.

    From my experience with my '17 3.5EB we most definitely need the passenger side can and I've heard mixed reviews on the drivers side or getting the dual can. If I had it to do over again I would definitely go with a dual if I was already getting the pass side can and with a bigger option than the JLT that I went with. I'm getting ~1/2" of oil/gas every other tank of gas ~900-1200 miles depending on how much spirited driving I do. Even though the '17 3.5EB was the first year for the dual, port and direct injection and 10 speed trans I still wouldn't run without it given my results.

    Unless he is for some reason pulling too much vacuum and actually pulling oil out of the engine. Otherwise it should be the same amount of oil going thru your standard PCV system as a catch can.
