You could also try putting an inline fuel filter in the PCV hose, that should trap it. Dont know how long before it would become saturated though. Haven't tried it but I heard that Grumpy Jenkins had.

The taps are not in the valve covers, which are cast aluminum Corvette covers. Was thinking about sticking a separator like used in air compressors into the line, so I could watch it and drain when needed. It would fill up in about 100 miles, based on my consumption, so not practical.

Want to figure a better system, if possible. First need to understand why it's happening, and if it's normal, or not.
