Here's a link of how the PCV system works.

It's recirculating gases back to the intake which will include some oil.

If I ever change the stock set up, I'll vent it to the ground like older motor cycles do. Faq the EPA.

Not sure of any of the blow by gas is flammable, but is there any danger of doing that? The gas can get trapped under the car and rise into the engine bay + heat could equal explosion or for possibly.

It's oil vapors, not gasoline.

Isn't a closed pcv system required to be smog leagal? States that have inspections would not pass a retro fitted vent dump to the air some of us need to breath? My JLT catches about an ounce off the passenger side between oil changes... I sure don't care to have that much oil vapor attached to my engine bay or sucked into the intake...
