I did it.
Having a propane only motor you dont have the "benefit" of the fuel to wash out the intake runners. You risk getting oil buildup on the intakes in the last two cyls which burns there and causes valve heat issues.

I made a simple oil/air scavenger by getting an old glass jar of about 200-250ml with a tin screw lid. Punched two holes in it and plumb it in between the PCV and the throttle plate. Put a bit of plastic flywire mesh in the jar to "catch" the oil vapour.

Works a treat and being glass you can see when it needs emptying.

Cost ZERO

No performance difference.
It is certainly worth it based on the oil I have prevented from getting to the inlet valves in my case.
Given it cost nothing to try you cant go wrong as far as trying it out. If you dont get any oil in the jar then take it out of the system.

With efi cars there is no fuel there either,in the manifold. But a good oil seperator is used alot on turbo/ forced induction due to higher crankcase presures.. I have seen alloy ones made..
M.R.T in Meadowbank sell them..
