You could get a mil eliminator which would probably turn that CEL off. What kind of inspections do they actually do in your area? I know when my area had emissions inspections all they did was basically walk around the car looking for something wrong. They would have you pop the hood for a visual inspection sometimes. But they would also stick a mirror under the car to check for a catalytic converter. Then they would stuff a sniffer up your tail pipe, now as to how accurate that thing was could be debatable.

What's funny, is that while I was waiting in line to have my E-check done the guy in front of me started up his car and it belched out a huge cloud of black smoke lol. Surprisingly enough, he passed the emissions check and drove off without any problems. That's why I have high doubts as to how well these E-check stations are.
