: Pic of contents of catch can emulsion

03-13-11, 09:17 AM
I opened the drain on my catch can after 900 miles of very easy driving in temperatures averaging 25 degrees. I refrained from hard acceleration during the 900 miles. I have no doubt if the weather was warmer and there was heavy acceleration, there would have been less condensation and more oil.

The mixture was water, oil & gas.

Cream and sugar with that?

:hmm: That seems like an awful lot for 900 miles. On all the cars I've ever had catch cans on I've never seen such a milky solution like that. Are you filling the crankcase with chocolate milk?

It is not really alot compared what my srt8 collected. I was initially concerned about the color too but after researching, it seems normal for this time of year.
the reason for the chocolate milk color is condensation/gas.

I think i remember your catch can post from the SRT8 days, maybe it wasn't you but all i remember was that the catch can was 3/4 full

Yes, the 6.1 hemi catch can filled up really quick.
