The Ohio emissions testing facility cannot test emission because my computer has not reset after the battery went dead. They told me I have to drive it for a little while. So my question is how long do I have to drive it, start and restart etc...

I brought my 993 out of storage but the battery was dead.  It relunctantly took a jump.  I brought it to the emissions check facility in Ohio but their computer could not communicate with my car's computer to complete the emissions check.  They told me to start and stop and drive it.  The Porsche dealership confirmed the same.  My question is how long do I have to do this.  I drove about 150 miles and started and stop it a dozen times, took the car back for the emmissions check and they told me I did not do it enough.
