It's not always oil that goes through the catch can, there's fuel and water vapor too :) Not something I would want draining back into my oil pan. Those crazy germans....
Can you explain this more in depth? I highly doubt that a mass-market vehicle manufacturer would put these on their product if it does this. I know that these plastic units are made by Purolator and also have an internal baffle. I really don't care about the *bling, bling* aspect of these oil catch cans, and would rather recirculate my oil anyway.

I have a small clear catch can. It usually fills up with a brownish liquid that looks and smells like a mixture of water and fuel and a bit of oil. Regardless if that is unique to my car, the oil that's usually in a catch can was once vapor. I doubt it's useful as a lubricant after being vaporized.

I just read your install which was helpfull but, on my car i found oil in the other line that goes from the valve cover to the throttle body and in the throttle body. What is the purpose of the other line or should i install two catch cans?
