    After install Catch can results

    Hey ya’ll my truck is a 2014 with 88,800 miles on it all stock.

    Last week installed the UPR mega catch can and after a week of driving 486 miles later I drained the can and almost got a full 16oz of murky water oily crude out of it.

    Is this normal or a problem?

    Thanks all.

    That's what it's designed to do. Nasty looking crap. I still gotta put mine on. Bought it off a member here almost a year ago. The big question though is, "what recipe are you using it in with the insta-pot"?

    It's normal dude. Especially this time of year when its colder out. The can will be colder and therefore more of the water in the air will condense in the can. Also, if you live in an area that is humid everything compounds and you get more fluid in the can.
    I have the upr dvcc and the clean side separator. I don't get much water in mine mostly oil/gas mix but it's probably due to living in Canada where it's less humid

    Normal, especially right after you install the can.

    Just be sure to dump it every few hundred miles. If the can freezes, wait for a long drive where everything gets up to temperature, the hot gasses will melt the ice that can form inside the can. You can then fully dump the contents.

    Interesting, I would have thought you would get more water in the mix due to your location

    Wow, mine is mostly water condensate like the OP. Being that dark do you check your oil level regularly?

    Hey thanks everyone! I was just shocked by the amount in such a short time since the install.

    Sure glad I went for the mega can with clean side separator!
