Has anyone installed an oil catch can on the PCV tube?  Just wondering if it could possibly reduce the water and fuel accumulating in the oil.

I haven't had OMM mode ever in the past almost 3 years.  As long as you avoid short engine runs you won't need it.

Unfortunately I do short engine runs, especially in the winter with decreased EV range. I have noticed the oil and water sludge accumulating on the oil cap, with less then 50% oil life. I do run the engine to operating temp once a month. Might give it a try and see what I catch.

i have been looking into this myself, with the omm monitor and the nature and di engines, it would be a good idea.  Im trying to scope out the engine bay a little more to find a suitable and kind of hidden spot to mount it, and then i might just buy one of the unversal ones that focus or mustang guys use bc the fittings might work out a little better then just using barb fittings and rubber hose, plus it will look better
