OP get new gas cap. Disconect the battery and hope for the best. Whatever codes that come back you will have to deal with individually.

IDK about where you live but in CA if you "clear the codes to turn the light off" you also reset the monitors, and with incomplete monitors you fail the emissions test. And as soon as the monitors are complete they turn the light back on and you fail. The system was designed this way for a reason. To force you to fix it, not just clear the codes for a stupid test.

According to Illinois DMV most gasoline-powered cars model year 1996 or newer are subject to emissions testing after they are 4 years old. Heavy duty trucks 2007 or newer are also subject to testing if they weigh between 8,501 pounds and 14,000 pounds.

Exclusions apply for parade vehichles, antiques, farming, diesel, and possibly those that have exceeded $450 in repair costs to correct a previously failed test.
