    Riva Catch Can

    How much oil/fuel is normally found in the catch can after running thru a tank? Since I put in the Stage 3 wheel I am getting about an 1/8 of a cup.

    If I run mine hard enough, I will get close to 1/2 on a single tank, but I have a rude and the ski is rich, normal is about a 1/4 full.

    Wow. . . I get basically none. I drain mine probably every other month(during riding season) and each time I only get a few drops at the most; with Riva III

    It seems like the more boost you have the more fluid you will have in the catch can. I have a lot more with the Rude charger than I did with the SC3.

    What exactly is this liquid? It seems to be more fuel than oil. When it gets on my hand the smell stains for a few days. Why would fuel come from the oil area of the engine? Is this blowby?

    it's blow-by gases... normal (within reason) to be mostly a fuel type mixture
