Smile Oil catch cans

Who here has an oil catch can or cans on their car? Also what weight oil are you using and how much oil gets collected in the can and how often? My inquiring mind would like to know, thanks, MM.

I've had two different brands. Currently I am using Bobs and I think both it's design and build quality are first rate. Their service is also excellent. For whatever reason you don't see them listed on a lot of the usual Mustang vendors, but they have their own web site so they aren't hard to find. I run 5w30 synthetic oil and how much the can collects is somewhat dependent on how hard you run the car. Usually I drain about a tablespoon every 2,000 miles. The Bob's can has a bottom drain valve so no need to remove or disassemble it to empty it.

This is true the harder you run your car, the more oil will dissipate.

Waste of money unless the car is FI.
