I then ran the Q-tip around the inside walls of the barb and only came up with a very slight discoloration. I than ran a new Q-tip around the inside of the quick connect and I did get some oil colored discoloration but it wasn't really that much and the Q-tip was still mostly white. It was more than what I got from running a Q-tip over the inside and outside of the manifold barb.
It doesn't appear that very much oil is getting through so it seems that the Bob's can is doing it's job pretty well.
This is very similar to what I'm seeing with the fully upgraded UPR can. The outlet barb has a slight film on the inside. I'm going to remove the outlet mesh from the can and run a longer outlet hose to see if that will eliminate the film.
