Cars > The pros & cons of buying a CNG-powered Honda Civic 10/06


Honda Civic
Natural gas has been used as a motor vehicle fuel since the 1930s. In fact, Chrysler, Ford, and General Motors once offered passenger vehicles fueled by CNG, sold primarily to fleets. Today one out of every five new buses uses CNG.

But with the increased focus on ethanol as an alternative fuel, fewer and fewer CNG-fueled passenger vehicles have been offered in recent years. In particular, budget-constrained domestic automakers withdrew from this niche segment due to slow sales, financial challenges, and limited refueling stations. Shoppers were left to choose from only from Honda and a handful of aftermarket conversion companies, along with used fleet cars.
