Cheap mod but if it helps keep a clean engine by cleaning the air recirculated back into the intake and potentially help gas mileage...why not. To each there own. Hope some tacoma owners with catch cans can chime in.
It might help MPG a but by keeping gunk out of the intake track. Also you wouldn't have to clean it so often. That reminds me, I should crack my intake open and take a look.

No clue... And they aren't necessarily all cheap. Some name brand ones go for hundreds. Might be build quality, reputation, engineering, who knows? Not everything is created equal I guess. But for something like this, I'd be willing to try out a cheap one.

Something else for the owner to forget to do. Some owners have enough trouble putting gas in their vehicles when it is needed.

Thanks for bringing my thread back from the dead..I empty out mine every 6000 miles with my oil change. It's hard to tell how much it collects but I do pour out quit a bit. Works well satisfied with it. BTW had one of those air compressor water separator and worked great on my 350 z.

Awesome! Thanks for the input OP! This is on my list of things to do now.

Also it ia Toyota we are talking about. If they can't make a dipstick that works they will probably fail at making a catch can too.

That is a good read. Lots learned there. Including how I came to learn the differences in how the air flows through a PCV system that is turbo's/centrifically supercharged versusN/Aand Rootssupercharged. < Changes where the air is being pulled and pushed from, in reference to the throttle body, thus affecting the flow of the PCV system.

Also, has the potential to pressurize the crank case, which is bad, if setup improperly.
