I know in Victoria it costs between $80 to $100 for a re-test

and I just sold a gas tank on ebay with 2 years left of life for $110, but have seen some out of date ones go for about the $60 mark

Be wise to strip down the converter and check it out - replacing the diaphragm might be warranted. If the coolant hasn't been changed regularly and inhibitor not added the casing could be corroded.

You'd be surprised that there are people out there who just run straight water as coolant.

There's a place on Heatherdale Rd called Ringwood Dynomatic. They upgraded my under-bonnet components and did a really good job.
