Maybe this post by Petman should be made a "sticky"? http://www.300cforums.com/forums/eur...ml#post1068567

Hi Alex.
Has it got a 'blow by' filter gauze to catch the oil fumes as they pass through? (The BT one HAS)
If not; Then you have bought a basic can that is designed to catch the oil from the cylinder head breathing pipe, Used by racers to stop the drips going onto the track surface.
If thats the case, You have pretty much wasted your time. Sorry to say.
Unless you mount the can very low & hope that gravity helps the oil drop into the can at the lowest point. However; Doing it this way you run the risk of the pipe blocking with oil & ruining your engine.

Both BT and Moroso catch cans are highly recommendable
