Dont worry. Ive had my setup for 3 years, didnt notice till I put clear tanks on it and it was foamy on the return. It just happens w/ all the sloshing around. I have not found it to put air in my lines either. It normally stays towards the top of the tank. :cool:

because of the pressure air and oli is mixed, that whats causing the foam, raise the car like an inch, and slowely loosen the fittings on the cilinders, the car will drop a little bit, quickly tighten them, after that it will foam less. a little bit of foam is normal
