Had smog machine connected again. Cat. convertor had a reading but not the evap

I believe you can "clear all codes" with your handheld OBD-II scanner....perhaps will work just fine with a fresh battery 5 years old tops with these new tin/antimony alloy batteries and clean the end of the black 1/0 cable that attaches to the frame/fender wirebrush this spot with a coarse wirebrush and the lug to...to insure a Solid 12.5 volts available to all systems there that NEED it~

fuel cap must seal and be tight, shut down when fueling, drive cycle may be 60 miles or more, this is absurd ,
