run the tank down to about 1/4 full or less

add one gal of denatured alcohol

drive for 10-12 miles

go pass the test

fill tank up and spend the next year fixing the problem

This will get you very low #'s

good luck

I guess it varies with setup.

But you passed, and that was the goal, so I don't see where the lack of being impressed with the #'s applies. That's like saying you weren't impressed with the way someone rescued you from a fire.

I had got down to the line with the time to pass. It passed with the alcohol and I was able to track things down without stress.

Alcohol is NOT to fix it, just to give you time to fix it with a current tag.

Now if you have the repair needed identified, I agree fix that 1st.
Alcohol is not to avoid fixing things. It's to give you time to do so.

I had a bad O2 sensor, among some maintenance that was needed.
I needed to wait for my next pychk to fix things and had to test b4 then.

BTW
Just because of the alcohol, my #'s dropped 50-75% depending on what was being measured. No, it didn't fix it, that's not what it was for. It passed me, that's all I wanted it to do.
