Most NA engines it will be mainly oil, some unburnt fuel, and soot and carbon particles as well as some sulfuric acid. But the ecoboost PCV system does not evacuate except at idle and low throttle, so a good deal of water and larger amounts of unburnt fuel and the other compounds will be caught in the first 1000 miles or so until the RX system has removed and evacuated what has been accumulating in the crankcase all along.
If you let it settle a week or so there are 4 distinct layers with water and sulfuric acid in the bottom section, next is fuel and water, then emulsified oil/water, and oil alone on the top.
All should be disposed of as any drain oil is, at any auto parts store or a collection site.
We just sent in the last drain from the shop EB F150 to BlackStone labs to see what they find in detail, and we will post this up.
Any engine though you do not want anything but air and fuel present in the combustion process.
Ok thanks and I wasn't sure if they would take that crap that comes out of it and I would be stuck storing the fluids. I drive about 22,000 miles a year and never had any condensation issues so is there an average how often it should be drained?
If the catch cans are really important Ford would put them on at the factory
They wouldn't sell so many if people knew they had to empty a container every so often so I can see why they wouldn't put it on. Ford has to balance power and mpgs with reliability so I don't think something like this is too high on their to do list.
You can get these installed at any Ford authorized dealership. Good enough for me to think they are worth it.
By all means, if you don't think you need one, then don't get one. It's all good! It's your truck!
Well said. What most dont realize as the last 2 generation auto makers have conditioned owner to buy a car/truck, and aside from putting fuel in, never even open the hood to check oil much less perform any of there own maintenance.
These are mass produced vehicles and as the GM example of knowing for 10 years a $.60 cent fix on millions of vehicles, and now Chrysler for the same.
Maserati has used these since the late 50's and 60's, Lamborghini just began advertising they are standard on their models, and many other super cars....but these are mass produced where even a .20 cent item will get shelved by management and accounting far to often.
To think the engineers are allowed free rein to make the best possible can never happen or we would be paying $200-400,000 for these instead of $35-$40,000.
We are working on a tier 1 solution for the big 3 that does not need to be serviced ever, but look at 6-8 years before it will get past EPA and ever be implemented, if ever.
Most are never aware of the issues and this will never be a concern outside the auto enthusiast that does want to learn about more than just putting fuel in.
Another improved MPG test after installing the RX system:
[QUOTE=Billynilly;126239]I got back from Colorado just getting around to posting my results.
I was running the 5star 89 Performance Tow tune. I also Have a Wagner CAC, S&B intake and MBRP 3 inch cat back.
I emptied the catch can the day after I got there (RX Monster Can)
Emptied 3 days after I got back.
While I was in Colorado I installed a 170 degree Thermostat and loaded the 5 Star 91 Performance Tow Tune.
I forgot to grab a Picture But I got 18.4 MPG on the way back. I was averaging 20 until I hit Richfield and the wind started blowing all the way back to Vegas.
Want to let all know, if you are in Florida, were located between Tampa and Sarasota and will do your complete install FREE! While you wait. And also give you a crash course on the ecoboost and direct injection specifically with engines and cylinder heads with various miles on to show comparisons. Same with the 5.0 or 6.2L....FREE installation for all.
