Condense the vapors
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Every day I fill my car's gas tank, I smell raw gas fumes. But when my car fails emissions testing for a gas cap leaking a very small amount gas vapors, it fails. This puzzles me, as in many areas of our country they recover these vapors, mostly in counties that test for vehicle emissions.

I remember from chemistry that vapors condense and form a liquid.

Hmmm, recover the vapors, condense them, and then sell the liquid for money. My theory must be flawed, as Utah hasn't done anything here.
