Ccv mod stinks!

I have a DIY ccv mod and just vented to atmosphere I was wondering if there was anything you could do to get rid of the smell coming out of it or do people just live with it? I have it venting just over the rear axel but I still get whiffs of it in the cab sometimes.

do you have a back glass window that you use? those can be bad about sucking on air from the exhaust and stuff behind the vehicle. my old h2 use to do it. I would try moving the location of the hose end for the ccv mod around a little, maybe it will catch a different path of air? other than that you pretty much have to live with is or get a closed system.

Yeah mine stinks as well but everytime a lil wiff blows into my back slider window all I think is imagine how bad it is going into your intake on a constant basis.

Mine is on a 12ft hose and vented down by the rear axle. It only blows up sometimes with the wind. I moved mine around and it cut down on the smell.

Yea I used to have it vent right under the back doors but I moved it to the rear axle it did help with the smell but it would be nice to get rid of it completely

Yeah that would be about the only was to completely eliminate the smell completely. I have read somewhere about someone dumping it into their exhaust too but I have no idea how well that would work.

has to be done with Venturi tubes. if there is not enough of an angle the exhaust pressure will blow into the hose, to much angle the exhaust will suck and cause a vacuum. way to sketchy for me, could really mess something up.

Thanks for the info. It seemed like it would be too much work and now with what you say sounds equally sketchy as well. Not worth it....

I was thinking the same but after that explanation I definitely won't do it.
