I think if you had less than a half a tank, you probably could clear the code, and then run it thru emissions testing and pass. I'm not 100% sure, as we don't have emissions testing here in Michigan.
Hm, never even considered doing it that way, to be honest I didn't know that would work.

I'll try it next time; thanks Rusty!

I cleared mine with a full tank and it took a third of a tank to come back on. Plenty of time to get the emissions done; as long as no other issues exist, the car will pass as long as it's warmed up.

Glad OP's code went away. Could be as simple as the full serve guys (or YOU, lol) being inattentive when putting your gas cap back on (loose).
