Gas Cap Testing and Replacement Program

Drivers interested in saving gas and protecting air quality can have their vehicle gas cap checked at locations in southern Michigan, and Lucas and Wood counties this summer. The City of Toledo Division of Environmental Services will do a compression test on gas caps of passenger cars and light duty trucks. Any cap that is leaky, or missing altogether, will be replaced for free. Gasoline vapors are one component that leads to development of ground level ozone, or smog. A leaky cap can also cost a driver up to two tanks of gas per year.


The test takes only a few minutes. Interns will collect data on the year and make of the vehicle and check the cap. Data from previous years suggests that older cars are more likely to have leaky caps but any vehicle may have an inadequate seal. Drivers are invited to stop by any of the locations at the dates listed below. The June schedule is also posted on the TMACOG website here.
