Lightbulb Oil Catch Can installation

Hi Guys,

I installed an oiled catch tank (can) to my Punto MK2 1.2 8v.
I made myself the piping, connections, filtering, etc. I have very good results in fuel consumption, i think.
I would like to share my ideas with the community.

Anyone has any experience in oil catch cans on this type of Punto or other Fiat?
I would like to know results from other people to compare and share the ideas!

Please dont laugh too much about the piping, because iam serious and it is for testing purposes. Maybe in the future if i have time and money i will by BMC OTA and redesign the piping. With BMC i think it would be better.
I have been using the car with the catch can for 6 months without any problem and if i dont drive like a mad the consumption is amazing

Re: Oil Catch Can installation

Hi,

You can read a lot of info about the benefits and how it is working in general. You can try to search on Google.
Sorry but I cannot explain it in short but the benefits are the following:
- better combustion,
- avoid valve deposition and misfiring,
- avoid used oil vapour which leads to less power,
- less pollution, because during the better combustion more particles burn,
- dirty oil is building up in the catch can, so no deposition in the butterfly valve, motor, etc.
- much longer engine life
- smiling

Re: Oil Catch Can installation

Tbh
Catch cans are pointless if the car is healthy and breathing normal

Excessive breathing cars - say worn born/piston rings it may benifit

But tbh a normal car with a regulary cleaned throttle body shud be fine for life
