Gasoline evaporates easily. In fact, according to Sun Oil Company research, a vehicle with a missing or inoperative fuel cap will allow 176 lbs. (22 gallons) of gasoline to evaporate over the course of one year. This fuel vapor was long ago identified as a major pollutant, and the vented gas caps that had been used for decades were changed in the early ‘70s to designs that prevented evaporation of fuel into the atmosphere. These caps have special pressure and relief valves that maintain a specific amount of pressure or vacuum in the tank before relieving. As emission regulations tightened soon it became mandatory to test fuel caps as part of a vehicle emissions inspection.
These fuel cap tester adapters fit most available testers and enable fuel caps to be tested quickly and easily for leaks and compliance with EPA regulations. Stant testers allow testing on nearly 99% of cars and light trucks.
