Not to get in a fight and NOT to say one would cheat, BUT, how many guys have a "Perfect" score because they don't do the test like the other 90%?
Get a small gas tank from a Junk yard. Couple gallons of water. Fill it up with 3 gallons of water, do a evap, test. PASS Next one more water, Hook up the evap, it did not show the same amount of gas used, MAN CAN'T BE CHEATING.
Point? Every vehicle, even those you CAN'T do a test on, THEY PASS EVAP. The person is doing over 90%.
No he is beating the system.
Hell you can put down you checked the timing and never check it.

Got a El Cheapo by me. Will not do Manual Trans. Will not do a vehicles with over size tires. Scans every one for monitors. Will not do unless 100% complete. Will not do older cars. STAR score? .99
Lots of stuff he will not do. My thinking? Why do I have to compete with a guy who is BEATING the system?
Star came about because people were beating the system. Those guys have just learned another way to beat the system. To have a score of POINT 99.
To me the person with the NO WRONGS, now that's the one the state should be looking at. Why is the state rewarding a shop that is not doing it as they want. TEST CAR AS PRESENTED! WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES. If we didn't we would not need the word.
Life will give you rope. It will give you enough to make a ladder to pull yourself up, or an noose to hang yourself with.
