CA Smog Test Results - Message for Duke2.6

Duke, just had my car smogged for CA at test only (By the way how do you get on the gross polluter list like I apparently did? By brand and model and year or are individual vehicles like mine tagged somehow? Last 2 smogs have been test only.) By the way, gas cap failed and new gas cap I had in the trunk also failed. What's the deal with gas caps? He had an adapter for MB gas caps. We made a deal....

Never mind on the questions above got the answers from your posts on:

Still interested in your anaylsis below. Who knew smog test results could be so interesting? You're like a palm reader. So will my car visit the big parking lot in the sky at 175,754 miles?

when i first got my 124 the tech dong the smog check was trying to failit, saying a disconnected hose near the air cleaner was the fuel pump regulator. and he couldnt, in all fairness, continue to test the car since it had already failed. i had to set him straight about that.

then he tried to fail me on the gas cap. so i looked him dead in the eye and told him if he wanted to test the car again after i came back from pep boys he was free to do so. i did get a free retest after all.
lets just say i passed.

long live the legend
