Default OCC in the winter

I am wondering what you guys think about running a catch can in the winter. I live in Canada and it gets to -20 frequently. What are the chances that something freezes and blocks the airflow? I am thinking that I better wait until spring to install this thing.

The lines are at the top of the can. They shouldn't freeze anymore than if there was no can in the way. The mixture of oil, fuel, water is unlikely to freeze easily.

I am thinking that the steel mesh filter inside the can would be the likey place for freezing to occur, but I suppose that you are correct in stating that all of the fluids would be mixed togther and the water/gas would have a lower frezing point when mixed with the oil.

i would say your chances are almost the same with a cc and without. for it to freeze up solid you would have to have alot of water in your oil and should probably change your oil anyways at that point.

my catch can fills up really fast in the winter due to all the condensation but its mixed with a bunch of nasty oily gas like stuff so i think it does it does a better job in the winter of keeping all that junk out of your intake manifold and engine.

I've had no problems with mine, last winter we had a week under 20ºF, it got down to -28ºF one night.

I'm sure if anything is frozen in there, it would soon melt and liquefy once the car is warmed up.

You will gather tons of condensation in the OCC during the winter, as Addicted stated.
