And for those saying I should fail, I'll defer to my original post. My car passed, based on a test of my actual emissions, even with the check engine light on. I was told my car tested "extremely clean" for emissions afterwards. It's just a stupid test.

For those concerned about the environment, I'd also question how many emissions are created when a perfectly good car is scrapped prematurely in favour of a new car, just because of the drive clean program. Building a new car creates a lot more emissions than driving an older less efficient one.
