1999 Toyota Avalon Smog Check without Gas Cap Attached

My 99 Toyota Avalon's smog test was performed with the gas cap off. I pointed it out to the technician and he said "It's o.k." is this true?


Technically "it's ok" as it would not affect your Toyota Avalon's emissions test outcome. We would not recommend driving a vehicle without it's gas cap (on the road or on a dynamometer) for simple safety reasons.
