I went Mike Norris at the 500 mile mark, and drained 3 oz of oil/water looking sludge at 1600 miles.

do you have it on the right side of the pvc system. I have about 5oz and mines just a weekend driver with a little less than 4000 miles. theres a clean side and a dirty side. clean side you won't see a drop. Its hard to believe with a sc you don't have a lot of oil in the can.

I have an Elite can I bought from JDP I check it periodically and I'm getting ready for my first (well second I dropped the oil at 1500) oil change at 5000 miles. The last time I looked in the can there was easily 3 oz of oil/fuel nastiness in it.

If the can wasn't there it would be all throughout my intake and on my valves.

It's mounted on the drivers side.

Well I found the problem I wasn't opening the drain valve enough. I usually give it a few turns when I check it but I just gave it about eight turns and what do you know about half a cup of nasty oil poured out. Now I guts to clean my garage floor
