Ontario emission test

I got a notice to do emission on the beater and figured I would hook up my obd2 and see what's up. Got error code for small gas leak and I went to double check the gas cap, and oops, it was not on tight. Hook up obd2 again and code still there, figure I would clear all fault codes. Little did I know and forgot from many warnings that your car must be driven at least 50kms for sensors to be ready.

Let this is be a reminder for those that need to do emission soon that if you are going to clear the fault codes by using obd2 or partsource or disconnecting the battery, remember to not go do the test the next day.

and if you are willing to pay for the test you can get it right after the birthday of the year you didn't need the test. Then you are already to renew 11 months later without worrying if you have a minor issue giving you a code on the OBD2
