I used a rifle cleaning rod with a white patch and ran the rod through the hose and found no trace of oil or junk on the patch. My can is mounted up as high on the firewall as it could be with longer hoses. I guess the can is doing its job just fine.
Yeah, the UPR can works really well.

Especially when it didn't cost me anything but the price of some aluminum, and a few hours work.
Agree. 100%
