Yes, if can adapt from the filler neck diameter to your smoke machine.

Or, you can get the Redline adapter:

I have both adapters and prefer the Redline. Fit's on every vehicle I worked on, while the other one is hit and miss.

Just curious if you did a purge and seal test? Also monitor the FTP sensor in H2O for better resolution. With the engine off close the vent and look at the readings. If you remove the fuel cap it should read 0"ih2o. Then if you apply the gas cap pressure should start to increase. Using a graphing scanner is the best way to monitor changes. This will help you confirm if their is an actual leak. If you do and can't find it using smoke. Use a nitrigen based tester to appy more pressure but not to exceed 1psi then use a soapy water solution to locate the leak. This works very good. I've been able to locate many leaks when smoke doesn't.

just a heads up. i'm pretty sure eddie meant for you to use the graphing on the solus pro, instead of the text display.
