It's more of a vapor spray, not a drip or anything significant(for my car)... I guess you could put something to catch the excess, but a Gatorade bottle sounds a bit ugly for my taste. I'm personally okay with just cleaning it up every so often. IMO, you may want to monitor how much oil is coming out before you do anything and go from there.

Also, I'm installing an oil catch can this weekend, so I'll post back if that reduces the amount of oil spray coming out of the DV hoses.
