    Talking Environmental dilema!!!!.

    I just can't make the decision without some consultation.At the moment I have the CCV system in place but I am venting to atmosphere.I know,naughty me.However,I have the chance of purchasing the Mann-Hummel Provent 200 closed system for £100.Now,this is my problem,do I continue venting to atmos and say sod the environment,or spend £100 and join the Tree hugging brigade??.Decisions,decisions. FELIXX.( Should I become a or ), what should I do?.

    Looks good to me. Now why don't Vauxhall fit them as standard?

    Question is where would you plumb the oil return pipe on the 200 version? It has a blow-by inlet and outlet, but also a oil return for the collected oil to go back to the sump!

    I read somewhere that it can be routed via the turbo lube return.(Or something like that anyway!).I'm sure someone will point me in the right direction. FELIXX.

    Mine has been Venting to atmosphere now for nearly a year and no probs also if you spend a 100quid there is no garentee it's better than the standard one and you will still be getting hot and smokey air venoms drawn in the inlet again where as atmosphere you only have cool fresh air

    There is no harm it only emits a little puff of smoke not loads and you can't even smell it

    Unless you follow me and with no dpf or cat when I boot it with my remap you see the smoke lol

    Keep it to atmosphere and save you 100quid towards a remap or something useful
