My V6 had a catch tank already fitted when I bought it. It was fitted around the same time as a brand new manifold at only 30k! I wonder if the owner was thinking the same thing. Unlike Rich though in a year of ownership Iv'e only had to empty it twice - and that was from the halfway mark. It may just be in my mind, but I cant help thinking where else the slop would go now Iv'e seen it! Better in my little tank than in the car! At least thats what I tell myself!

In my Hippos defence it was doing a 75km commute daily and ran very well.
The only reason I no longer have it is because I swapped it for my ZT190.
The new owner, a multiple 75 owner is very happy with it.

A little oil in the box doesn't scare me, but I've seen far too many VIS motors contaminated with the stuff. Stocktake's balance motors have a seal to prevent oil ingress which seems to help quite a lot - I doubt it he would have bothered if he didn't feel it was necessary.
