Hi all,
This has probably been asked before,so apologies in advance...just fitted a oil catch tank today! looks the dogs bits(cheers Venom)! Wanted to know how many other users of these tanks have bothered to baffle their tanks.Are there any great advantages in doing it and with what?
Carl.

I haven't but some use pan scourers from typical hardware shop or poundland type shops. Apparently it keeps a hold on any oil residue thus preventing it from being drawn back into the intake system.

The evidence is conclusive there! How long did it take for them to become so thick with oil?I trust you didnt use toothpaste in the KV! Did you use the brush to retrieve them from the tank?
