Free Replacements for Leaky Gas Caps
TMACOG and the City of Toledo Division of Environmental Services invite drivers in Lucas and Wood counties to stop by one of the gas cap testing locations this summer to see if the gas cap on their car is secure. A leaking or missing gas cap adds to air pollution, and is expensive. To test your gas cap, drive in to one of the 2011 testing sites at a Kroger store or Shell station. The compression test only takes a few seconds. Most leaky or missing caps can be replaced for free on the spot. Last summer, teams found that more than 11 percent of cars and trucks driving around in northwest Ohio were leaking gas into the atmosphere through leaky or missing gas caps.
Gas cap testing is scheduled from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. The program will be suspended on days when ozone levels are projected to be at the two highest levels: Precautionary Measures Should be Taken by Sensitive Groups, or Caution.
