I'm not certain how I could quantify any results as yet, plus I haven't even owned the car long enough to have a yearly or normal baseline established as to my average FE.

I think I could objectively test it even though I have my doubts as to its actual fuel-saving capabilities.

Worse comes to worse, I guess it's a free catchcan. What do you think?

Maybe MetroMPG would be the better recipient since he's the testing guru.

Condisales is supposed to be sending me one. Just give it a fair test?

Yeah, I'll be fair about it, but until I get a MID there probably won't be any definitive results and I think because of how it works and what it is connected to that an A-B-A test will prove absolutely nothing.

Plus, tank to tank tests are already extremely variable so I doubt we are going to see any kind of repeatable results at all.

You're right about not having the sMID and the tank to tank varibility but if it gets the results claimed you won't need the sMID. 20% of 55MPG is 11MPG. Which as you know is a huge gain, more than the normal 2-3 MPG usually seen. If you don't change the driving techniques or add any other mods that will take a lot of the varibility out of it. So just hook it up and see what happens and let the chips fall were they may.

Best comparison might be the Suburu Legacy at EPA 23 to 25 mpg combined. With a gain of 4.5 mpg...this = around a 19% gain.

But every car is different..............as the saying goes.

With my Tercel 4WD 1.5L...baseline in the summer is around 30 mpg combined....and I generally drive it consistantly. So if I see 35-36 mpg I'll probably notice it.

So you can make a catchcan out of anything with an inlet/outlet for air? Seems easy and cheap enough.
These are pretty specific plans...derived from some experience. Use this design or learn on your own?

So, after 2,000 or so miles my catch can is nearly full.

After I hooked mine up for about two tanks it was full of this yellowish substance. I thought that the head gasket was going but it stopped and I have not seen anything since. I'll put it on any car I own. Mine need to be empty about every 3000 miles.

I installed one about 1000 miles ago. The gasket between the plastic resevoir that fills up and the threaded head of the filter itself keeps moving out of place. Like it is getting sucked into the resevoir. Is this normal? Is the vacuum enough to move the gasket out of place?
