    How are they the best? They don't have any connection to return the oil, that they are supposed to extract from the fumes, back into the sump.

    A lot of people rave on about them? Never heard of emptying the catch can at service intervals?

    The thing is, sometimes catch cans also collect some condensation, you don't really want that going back into the sump.
