New JLT oil separator 1/3 full in only 1,500 miles. Is this normal?

Our 2015 GT now has 8,100 miles on it, and during the winter, I installed the JLT oil separator. I am running Pennzoil Platinum in the specified viscosity.
Almost all of the 1,500 miles we've put on the car have been on the highway since taking it out of storage.
I was surprised to find today that the separator was almost 1/3 full. Although I an happy it appears to be working very well -- is this amount of oil coming through the PVC system a normal amount? If I waited to empty it at my 5,000 mile oil change intervals, it looks like it would be nearly full to overflowing........
