Need help! Cert/Etest

Alright friday my car goes in for everything. I am just wondering what kind of prices I am lookin at if anyone knows.

Oil Change - Probly like 30 bucks at wally mart..

Cert - What like 75 or something?

E-test - 35??

Now a few other things I am wondering. I am going to change the plugs and oil for Etest and my dad told me to dump a bottle of Injector Cleaner in with a full tank of 94 but I herd that stuff can raise your emissions is this true??

Second how long is the cert good for untill you put plates on it and everything. My dad says 30 days but who knows.

Third any tips or tricks to help pass the etest. I'm sure this call will past but any extra to help is a bonus. I herd put 94 it in and buzz it up and down the highway a few times and bring er in nice and hot but I am not sure. Any help is good thanls

i think your prices are pretty much bang on. an oil change at wal mart may be less..
changing your oil would be a good idea if its dirty.

safety is valid for 36days after date of inspection.

put in the recommended fuel for the car as yes it will raise the emissions. change your plugs , oil checnge, and clean the cap and rotor on the distributer. take her for a boot on the high way and when you take it in for an emission test stay out side with it running as you dont want it too cool right down, you want it hot.
good luck with the testing.
