Default Catch can caused horrible fuel mileage

I put one on my Rebel at around 500 miles. Didn't really pay too much attention to the mileage beforehand, but after removing it my mileage went up by nearly 3 miles per gallon and almost immediately.

Just figured I'd share this for anyone experiencing terrible mileage and has a catch can installed.

Good luck!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oil_Catch_Tank - I know, it's wiki. But it's a good description.

It's an air/oil separator that keeps your intake from getting sludged up from blow by from the crank case through the PCV system.
