Let's start with the "various reasons"...while they do blow some oil  
vapor, it shouldn't be excessive.  Why did you install the can, and  
what kind is it?  Does it have a filter/separator/baffles, or just an  
open can with in+out ports?  The "just a can" setups are virtually  
worthless, baffles aren't much better.

Oh- and is it vented to atmosphere anywhere?  If so, you'll fail  
emissions, with excellent reason; crankcase gasses are -extremely-  
polluting (which is why they're recirc'd!)
