Hey, I just failed my emissions test. No, the CO, HC, NOx was all fine, it was my stupid gas cap. So anyone know if there's a difference between what I can pick up at Napa, and a Toyota one? If oem's better hopefully my favorite parts guy will call me soon.. ;) thanks folks :cheers:

Just go in there with an old rag stuffed in the hole.
Make sure it is dripping with gas and stand there with a lighter and say
"MAKE IT PASS" :eek:

You could, that is if your are super cheap, get a new gasket for the OEM cap.

from my flu infested mind.....I think the gasket was only a few bucks less than the whole cap

The OEM cap has a valve in it that may or may not be duplicated in a generic aftermarket cap. Don't save a buck on an item that could fail in a crash and ignite an unstoppable fire. I started getting whiffs of gasoline from the 80 in the garage once in a while over a period of about a year. Replaced the gas cap and never smelled it again.

Go OEM for all the above reasons and because you don't really want to be messing with EVAP codes popping up. One trip to the shop to get them diagnosed would pay for 10 OEM caps.
