Don't know for sure, but I doubt it. I'm sure you can go to the state website and find out.

I don't think so...Pretty sure it is just certain counties around/in the metro-Denver area. I know Grand Junction doesn't require e-tests so I can't imagine Almont or Gunnison requiring them...


EDIT: should have read page 2 - so to as not make this post completely worthless here is the DMV link http://www.revenue.state.co.us/mv_di...incl=emissions

I received this from a friend...I like the analogy
"Want to know my opinion of the emissions program in Colorado? Here's a good analogy, say we have a problem with 10% of our population driving drunk, so how do we solve it? Let's require everyone in the metro area to take Antabuse. Problem solved right? That's how our emissions program works. Less than 6% of the cars on the road today violate air quality standards, but all cars are required to be tested AND we add ethanol to our fuel which itself creates all sorts of other environmental issues and our cars are not as efficient - we use more gas. Stupid program."

Add to that analogy that velcro shoes are required before they will give you the Antabuse so you must borrow shoes first.

Hey my son has some velcro shoes if you need to borrow a pair.. though I'm not sure they'll fit but I'm sure there's a "what size shoes can I run" thread around here somewhere..


and I wrote a term paper on the effects of disulfiram in college, pretty nasty stuff. holy thread digression..

My stomach turns every time I think of Envirotest.

Went to the Stapleton site and I was turned away by a very unfriendly lady.

Drove to the location off of south havana and there were no questions. Passed the test.

The website says measures less than 34" and My tires are now a shade under 34", the lady at the Stapleton place says doesnt matter what they measure, only what they are stamped.

When did laziness become the American way? If this woman worked for me, I would have kicked her in the behind.

air care is such a f'n screw...

They lowered the limits in may making it harder to pass. I wonder how many will be on the verge of failing now better look at your old test and see how close you would be now.

Just got to lookin' at this thread as usual. I had to test both of my vehicles this year. My runner passed even though the engine hadn't been run basically in 3 years. But it was on old 33" tires. passed on the quick test. My 62 takes some doing. Had to put on a set of 31' tires. Lean out the airmass sensor. Kickup the shifting cable. Fresh oil and plugs. And then tell the tester to help it thru the test. I think these kids like to drive these modified rigs we bring and they have helped me every time. I go to the one west of Chatfield and Kipling. But I have gone thru the woes of not passing with the 62. That is where I learned these things.
