Or will i have to drain wherever the oil pooled?
From my understanding, this needs to be drained yourself.
Do it every oil change

I understand that you have to drain the catch can every time you change the oil. What I meant to ask was do I have to drain wherever the oil pooled prior to installing the catch can, or will that burn off after a while?

Oil never pools anywhere before installation of a catch can. The point of installing the catch can is to create point to pool the oil so you can stop it from going back into the engine and being burned.

Might as well add to this thread because I can confirm about 1/4 can per 2,000 kms. That has been my experience since I put one on my engine. I'm not worried at all since my engine is running great and as far as the dip stick is concerned I'm not using any oil after 5,000 kms. So what the catch can is catching is minimal compared with the amount in the crankcase. Best part is that it is not messing up my intake.

I had 1/2 can (possibly slightly over) at 4500km's
Glad it caught all that oil vs going to as you stated, the intake

Let me know when you're free to meet up. Even halfway.
Yorkdale area....

Sounds to me like it's working properly. Sure half way works for me, I'm free tomorrow late morning to early afternoon. Sunday I'm busy doing a fund raising event. Let me know if tomorrow works for you, need to pick a good location close to Yorkdale mall.
