It can contain more than just oil therefore I really don't see the benefit of analyzing anything that comes from a catch can, but I could be wrong though and would be interested to hear otherwise.
I have a Mighty Mouse Catch Can (Amazing built quality, good features, functions very well and looks top notch IMHO) on my V and depending on how many miles driven, condition of the motor, driving conditions and how big your catch can is I think that is/could be a problem. Are you sure the can is hooked up right? I have only drained mine a couple times and my car is no Daily Driver by any means but I put 6-10k on a season. Even when I drain it at the end of the season, I'm only seeing 3oz at most, if I had to guess.
Yes its installed correctly. I think it collects alot because it sees about 70% highway driving, 5 days a week. Also, because the lines are long, it gives the crank case vapor longer time to cool and it causes more of the "stuff" to collect in the can. I'm fine with it because its not all going back into the manifold and on the back of the valves.
On a side note, something I found kinda interesting. On the Yukon the collected "stuff" smells like gas and oil, extremely petroleum scented. On my F150, I have the same JLT 3.0 can but I run E85 exclusively in it. The collected "stuff" from my F150 smells almost like nothing at all. It's kinda crazy to be honest. I'm not educated enough in PCV systems to have an explanation but I did find it rather interesting. I wish I could run E85 in the Yukon.
