So, you're saying these "volatile vapors" will improve mileage 20-40%?

That's quite a claim to make!

Crap! Another "miracle" device with a whole ton of butt-dyno testamonials and no A-B-A testing. When I get my MID I'm going to test a catch can. I don't care if I have to drive all day to get some kind of result!

Yeah, I doubt the catch can will do crap for mileage, but it keeps the oil from gunking in my IM.

The subtracted gunk is probably good for 1-2 mpg on a regular basis, which is what I'm thinking the catch can is mostly going to do. 7 mpg extra in a truck? pfft...I wonder how hot it was that day.

I think we really need to educate people on the variability of FE - especially due to temperature - and that checking "once in a while" isn't good enough. Everyone I talk to about it has no idea how much it jumps around. I didn't even know until I bought the Metro and started researching it.

Well, depending on your average I suppose it is.

Okay 1-2 mpg in the summer.

It was a pretty basic setup.

Pretty damn fun little setup.

Are you saying this is from a catch can? Has anybody tested this? I thing all you would get is to empty it every 3000 miles.
